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.

I had never put a bowling alley in a house before, and so when I was looking for a company to provide that service, I met with Matt at Fusion Bowling. Matt and his team provided all the information that I would need and made sure that I knew every detail of what I needed to do to make sure the job went smooth, they made visits to the site and numerous phone calls to me to confirm all openings and placement of all sleeving needed for wiring and made the job a huge success and a very happy client. I highly recommend Fusion for anyone looking to have a bowling alley installed, for the simple fact that the attention to detail and the communication provided from Matt and his team made the job as simple as possible.
