Duckpin Social. Traditional Bowling Re-invented.
As the leader in bowling for more than 125 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 far less 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. 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 in the venue longer, encourages repeat visits, and builds guest loyalty.
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. 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.
