The 5 Finest Bowling Alleys in Calgary

The 5 Finest Bowling Alleys in Calgary

Though Calgary doesn’t have anything remotely close to Inazawa Grand Bowl – the biggest bowling alley in the world that has a staggering 116 lanes – our city still has its fair share of charming lanes. 

To prove it, we actually tested just about every option we could find over several weeks! Prepare your stylish bowling shoes because you’ll want to strap them on and hit the lanes after you’re done with this read. Here’s a promise from us: you’ll definitely find something right up your alley!

Formerly known as the Mountain View Bowl, Splitsville is currently going through exciting transitions to provide a more exciting bowling experience for its patrons. That said, this retro-inspired bowling alley that can bring you back in time is still up and running! 

Anyway, they offer both 5-pin and 10-pin bowling, which is something that’s hard to find in other areas. Typically, you’ll find bowling alleys in the city only offer one or the other – never both. 

Another thing we love about Splitsville is that it’s located inside the Glamorgan Shopping Centre, putting it in close proximity to a lot of other exciting activities.
