"Battle Buddy Bowling-Chicago" features an afternoon of "no-tap" bowling (knock down nine pins on the first ball in a frame, get credit for a strike) and video analysis and instruction by professional bowler and Gold-Level coach Bill Spigner, a member of six bowling Halls of Fame, including the U.S. Bowling Congress and Illinois State halls.

The ticket price ($25/adults, $15/children 12 years and under) includes an all-you-can eat pizza party and participation in raffles with gifts ranging from autographed sports memorabilia to baskets of beauty products, grilling accessories and pet and children's toys; gift certificates to some of Chicago's standout restaurants like Harry Caray's and the Signature Room; and more. Prizes will also be awarded for the highest single-game no-tap scores of the day. Check-in is at 1:30 p.m.; bowling begins at 2.
