ontario football bowling

Canada's First


What is football bowling?

Two teams of two players each, face off as they aim to knock down all ten regulation-size bowling pins by throwing a football toward their opponent's set of bowling pins at an agreed upon distance.  Teammates throw a football at their opponent's bowling pins from the same side of lanes rather than pitching from opposing sides, as they do in the bean bag toss tailgate game. The bowling pins are arranged on a lane in the standard 10-pin bowling configuration and each team takes turns attempting to knock down the other team's bowling pins. The first team to knock down all of their opponent's pins wins the frame. The first team to win three frames wins, in an official match.


About us

We are just a couple of washed-up ball players who crave being outside, throwing some things around for a good time. Alex, a metro Detroit native, saw this beautiful game emerging in and around his hometown. When he moved to Canada, he saw a Canadian summer culture of fun-loving outdoors folks who would surely love football bowling at any place with space to do so. Travis, one of those Canadian summer-loving folks, and Alex played baseball together for the Guelph Gryphons. Travis helped Alex develop the plan to spread the love of football bowling and the rest is history. Find Alex & Travis at an OFB event or reach out to info@ontariofootballbowling.com to share whatever thoughts are on your mind.
