What is Fowling?

The Original Football Bowling Pin Game

It started as a one-lane mashup of football and bowling while tailgating at the 2001 Indy 500. Today, Fowling is quickly turning into a national sensation. Give it a try and you’ll see.

How Do You Play?

It’s as easy as throwing a football at ten bowling pins until someone knocks them all down. BONK™. Drink. Repeat. Check out the short, simple rules to find out about Fair Ups, Overtime, Sudden Death and more.



Friday Night Tournaments
