Duckpin bowling:

A different type of party

Duckpin bowling is a little known variation of the standard bowling game. The game utilizes a bowling ball that is about five inches in diameter and smaller bowling pins to match. Originated in Baltimore, this unique game has been around since 1900. As the game evolved over the years it gained popularity and even went on to become a favorite pastime of Babe Ruth. 

Over six decades of fun

Since 1955, we’ve brought the unique  duck pin bowling experience to Connecticut. Visit us and learn what has made us a staple among local residents for over 60 years.
