Duckpin Social

The brand-new amenity that delivers all the advantages of bowling in far less space


As the leader in bowling for more than 125 years, we at Brunswick challenged ourselves to rethink our beloved game to make it even more accessible. Introducing Duckpin Social®, the brand-new amenity that delivers all the advantages of bowling in far less space, making it ideal for social clubs, bars, restaurants, resorts and hotels.

Duckpin Social is our new take on Duckpin Bowling, a ten-pin game popular throughout Canada and the Northeastern United States for more than a century. Duckpin Social bowlers use a smaller sized ball, without finger holes and each player is allowed up to three rolls per frame. Duckpin Bowling is easier and more approachable than traditional bowling. Like bowling, Duckpin Social appeals to young and old, drives food and beverage sales, keeps guests on the property longer, encourages repeat visits, and builds guest loyalty.

For owners, Duckpin Social’s small footprint maximizes revenue per square foot. There’s less inventory required, since Duckpin Social uses a smaller sized ball, and rental shoes aren’t required. Cost savings continue with minimal lane and pinsetter maintenance requirements. Duckpin Social’s lanes can be installed in as little as 31 feet, compared to standard bowling lanes which require a minimum of 87 feet, making Duckpin Social a great option for venues where space is at a premium.

For guests, Duckpin Social delivers all the fun of bowling while keeping it simple. There’s no need to rent shoes or search the center for the right-size ball. Duckpin Social provides a unique experience to share with family and friends, and is versatile enough to be challenging for adults and fun for kids.
