The Fowling Warehouse Ypsi-Ann Arbor

Football hitting bowling pins set up on a platform

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.

Bonks!!

Each time someone throws a Bonk here at the Fowling Warehouse Ypsi Ann Arbor we stop everything for the ceremony.  First, you are awarded the actual pin you Bonked on as a souvenir of the occasion.  Next you log your name into the “permanent record” of Bonkers.  Next you write your name on the Bonk Board.  Best for last, you pull the lever that sets off the BONK HONK, our 140-decibel freighter horn (think Joe Louis Arena’s goal horn) to announce your entry into the Bonk Hall Of Fame.  The latest Bonk Board is just to the right. Click the link if you want to see each month’s Bonk Board and a list of EVERY BONK ever made at the FWYA2!!
