Castle Lanes is closed for business. Unfortunately, because of the effort that it would take to reopen (and because there is already another bowling center only one mile away at a more prominent location), we do not plan on reopening.
We would like to thank all our customers, league bowlers, internet reviewers, advertisers, and the Merced County USBC for their continued support of Castle Lanes over the years.
We would also like to thank Webs.com for allowing us to create this website for free. At one point in 2011, it was our last lifeline to reach out to new customers and ultimately stay open, and it was a big success. Sadly, on October 26, 2012, we had to close our doors because of other issues.
Now that reopening would take gutting the entire building due to neglect, and because the old Castle AFB is no longer a very prominent location, we are currently left with no choice but to close our doors and turn our business to other bowling alleys. If we ever reopen, it will more than likely be under a new name at another location, most likely in Merced.
As of now, our phone number (209) 723-7454 and our email address firstname.lastname@example.org are no longer operational. If there is an emergency (you left something in Castle Lanes, etc.), call Steve at (510) 847-8487 and he'll sort it out.
