Bowling Vision favicon

Duckpin Social. Traditional Bowling Re-invented.

As the leader in bowling for more than 135 years, Brunswick challenged themselves to rethink our beloved game to make it even more accessible. Introducing Duckpin Social™ (also known as Duckpin bowling or miniature bowling), the brand-new amenity that delivers all the advantages of bowling in a third of the space, making it ideal for F&B led competitive socialising venues.

Modern take on a traditional game

Duckpin Social is our new take on Duckpin Bowling, a game popular throughout Canada and the Northeastern United States for more than a century. Bursting with charm and charisma Duckpin Social can easily be incorporated into any environment or interior design style.

Duckpin Social simpler and more approachable than traditional bowling. Like bowling, it appeals to young and old, drives food and beverage sales, keeps guests in the venue longer, encourages repeat visits, and builds guest loyalty.

There’s no hunting round for the right weight ball, everyone used the same balls. Smaller and without finger holes our Duckpin Social balls are easier for children to use whilst making the game more challenging for adults to master.

Duckpin Social is designed for restaurants, bars, entertainment centres, resorts, leisure centres, holidays parks, hotels – anywhere and everywhere people get together to have fun. 

Competitive & addictive

Duckpin Social’s small footprint maximises 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, any bartender or server could keep your lanes ticking over, without technical training or specialist equipment. The compact and durable StringPin pinsetters even auto-detect tangles and automatically rights the pins.

Duckpin Social’s lanes can be installed in a space less than 10 metres length, compared to standard bowling lanes which require three times the footprint, making Duckpin Social a great option for venues where space is at a premium.

Powered by Sync Scoring, Duckpin offers a variety of games and formats that keep the experience fresh and can be tailored to guest preferences.

Spark interactive lanes

Duckpin Social is now available with Spark. Spark’s impressive projection technology surrounds the bowler in a visually striking, immersive experience. With Spark your lanes can be animated with playful selfies and avatars of your players furthermore the integration with Sync allows the lanes to be transformed with creative interactive games.

Spark games, designed for all skills levels, provide unique targets, rules and social-media worthy moments, providing a higher value experience. Dynamic, engaging content and expanding game libraries ensure repeat visits, higher revenues and boosted food and beverage sales through sustained interest.
