You have heard about pools indoors and little putting areas for golfers being implemented into the family home.. Would you ever have a little bowling alley put into your home so that you could practice bowling?

I can't even imagine a house large enough to have it's own bowling ally, it would be great though :)

How large would it have to be to fit a small one lane alley? Maybe even build on a little hall for this purpose;)_+

well for the practise to be worthwhile I'd imagine fairly large, otherwise you'd be so close to the pins you could almost kick them over lol

I think it would be really cool to have a bowling alley in my house. If we had a great big house and the money to do it i would for sure.

Just a minature one is what I have in mind:) Like people practice golf swings and batting for baseball..I thought maybe it would be nice for bowlers to implement a bowling alley ...just one lane ..where they can practice their techniques.:)+

You know that I would do something like that my dear friend. If I had the money to buy myself a big home I would definitely put a bowling alley in my home so I can practice every day and not have to drive to the bowling alleys, other than for leagues. I could practice in private or with friends. It would be really neat.

Oh yes. My husband and I used to bowl all of the time and were on leagues over the years. Neither of us have bowled in years. My daughter bought a Wii and it has bowling and she brought it here when she brought my grandson and we all loved it and mostly bowled and bowled and bowled. It is very good exercise too. So, since I can't find a Wii anywhere and my daughter took hers home a bowling alley in the home would be very nice. Not sure if the landlord would appreciate it or not though. hahaha

Well if you can assure the safety of their premises and tell them how much more their property would be worth;)+

If I had a large enough house (and it would have to be BIG) to do it of course I would. Even the White House has a bowling alley in it. (there is also a putting green) I have actually been to someone's house that had a bowling alley in the basement. It was duckpin bowling not 10-pin bowling and you had to set the pins by hand but it was still a full-length bowling alley and was pretty cool for a youngster like myself.
