What is Specto Bowling?
Specto Bowling is a tracking system for bowling centers, bowlers and coaches. It records information about a bowler’s shots using an advanced sensor and displays the information to them on the easy to use Specto Bowling app. The app also includes games modules and challenges.
Bowlers who participate in our Youth Singles League – Division A, Youth Sport Pattern League and the MJHS & MHS Bowling Teams will be using Specto Bowling during their coach-led practice sessions and league times.

Lane reservations can be made by calling the Alley at 309-266-7010. We are no longer taking lane reservations via email or FB Messenger.
Potter’s Alley makes a select number of lanes available for reservation. The majority of our bowling lanes are for walk-in guests.
Lanes are allocated based on the number of bowlers. As lane space in our facility is limited, we cannot accommodate requests to spread out bowling groups at less than 6 bowlers per lane.
Lane reservations are held for 15 minutes past the lane reservation time and then released to walk-in bowlers. Most nights we are sold out – if your party is running late or your party’s headcount changes, please give us a call.
Our lanes have manual bumpers, so they do not go up and down between bowlers.
Bowling shoes are required for all bowlers. We have rental shoes from toddler size 8 to men’s size 16.
Bowlers should never cross the foul line. All bowling lanes are coated in a special oil which makes the surface slippery. If a ball is stuck on a lane, please let a Potter’s Alley Crew Member know.
We cannot guarantee which lane your group is placed on. Groups of bowlers are assigned to lanes based on current lane availability and the amount of seating required for each lane.
Outside food and beverages are not allowed in our facility.
Here at Potter’s Alley, we invite young and old to come bowl with us, grab a bite to eat, or join an adult or youth league. There are many reasons to love us:
Plus, we offer a clean, safe facility featuring the latest scoring technology – Brunswick SYNC! We invite everyone to come check us out!
