The Fōwling Warehouse has come to the Ypsilanti / Ann Arbor area! This newest location from the growing franchise has its grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony on April 14, 2022.
But first, what the heck is Fōwling™?!
Fōwling™ blends characteristics of football and bowling, hence its name. Fōwling’s origins begin back in 2001, when Detroit native Chris Hutt was tailgating with friends outside the Indy 500. What began as a friendly competition between tailgaters developed into an entirely new game by an innocent twist of fate. Hutt and friends had set up an oversized, outdoor bowling alley when a stray football knocked down some bowling pins, and the rest as they say, is history.
The first Fōwling Warehouse opened in Hamtramck in 2014, and now has franchised locations in Grand Rapids, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Atlanta, and now in Ypsi-Ann Arbor.
The game itself is simple. Each team has a set of ten bowling pins and takes turns throwing a football to knock the other team’s pins down. The game begins with a coin toss to decide which team goes first and ends when all the bowling pins are knocked down. You can find the official rules here.
This newest addition to the Fōwling craze has over 30,000 square feet with 20 lanes and 2 bars offering over one hundred beers, seltzers, ciders, wine, and liquor from which to choose. There are two play options. Unlimited Open Play is $12, which works similarly to a pool hall; the winner stays in the lane and the loser finds another team to challenge. Or groups of up to ten people can reserve a lane for $120 for two hours of play.
This unique outing has been used for corporate team building, birthday parties, date nights, or just a fun night out with friends.
