Bowling Alley Lane Dimensions

Click on the image to the right to download a PDF showing bowling alley lane dimensions for a regulation size bowling alley with a typical pair lanes. Architects, builders, interior designers, and property owners should use the included dimensions as general guidelines only. Every project is different, so please contact Fusion Bowling before designing official construction drawings.

Bowling Lane Minimum Widths

The diagrams shown in the PDF depict measurements required for a pair of lanes requires 11'6". For single-lane configurations, you'll need a minimum width of 6'9". For four-lane projects, the minimum width required is 22'8". In addition to the width required for the bowling equipment itself, it's usually a good idea to add some extra space along each side, either for a walkway to get to the mechanical room in the back, or simply to provide a little more elbow room for the bowlers.

Our family was considering a purchase of something fun our whole family could enjoy with ages ranging from 4 to 78. We started researching a number of bowling companies and decided on Fusion Bowling. Why Fusion Bowling? After a short conversation with Matt and Ryan you will know they have the most knowledge and have the best equipment. It turned out to be a fantastic decision. They went above and beyond my expectations. The bowling lanes turned out great. Our whole family is enjoying making memories. I am so impressed with their professionalism and workmanship. I am telling anyone considering bowling lanes or a bowling alley to feel free to call me anytime for a more in-depth reference.

As a General Contractor and business owner, my reputation is at stake when it comes to the Sub Contractors that I choose & entrust to provide quality craftsmanship, products, & services for my clients. I contracted with Matt & his firm to install residential bowling lanes in a high-end home that I was building for a PGA Tour Golfer and personal friend. Not only were the lanes required to perform perfectly for the client & his family, but they had to exceed all expectations for specific design & function as this home was prominently featured in the "Street Of Dreams" Showcase of Homes. I can say that Matt definitely surpassed the highest of standards established for our project in terms of his level of professionalism, personal integrity, and the value of services that we received... and all while meeting the most time-restrictive deadline. I highly recommend Matt of Fusion Bowling as you'll find that he delivers an amazing quality-end product and possesses an incomparable knowledge of equipment technology, as well as the latest sought after design trends in residential bowling. Additionally, Matt has proven to be both reliable and (atypically) "available" to our clients in providing post-installation services & valuable resources.
