Bowling - per hour or per game?

Should you pay to bowl per game or per hour?


You may ask yourself the following questions; should I rent the bowling lane by the hour or pay per game? Should I rent bowling shoes or buy bowling shoes? First answer a few bowling questions below, and then we will have answers to all your questions.

How many people are going to bowl in your group?
(number between 0 and 8 people)



How many hours do you want to bowl?
(between 0 and 24 hours)



How much does it cost to bowl per game at your bowling alley?
(for example 4.95)



How much does it cost to bowl per hour at your bowling alley?
(for example 19.95)



How much does it cost to rent bowling shoes per person?



How much does it cost to rent a bowling ball? (Usually this is 0)



What is the average time it takes for one person in your group to
play one game of bowling? (usually about 15 minutes)



How many times per year do you bowl?







Total price when paying by the hour. This is the grand total dollar amount you pay if you choose to rent the bowling lane by the hour.



Total price when paying for each game. If you choose to pay for each game, then this is the grand total you would have to pay for the time specified.



Total number of games per bowler in the time period you specified. If you pay by the hour, you may not have time to finish your last game. If you pay per game, you may go a little over the time you specified to finish the last game.



Yearly Shoe Rental cost This is how much you spend per year to rent bowling shoes. You may want to consider buying bowling shoes instead of renting them.

Yearly Bowling Ball Rental cost This is how much you spend per year to rent bowling balls. You may want to consider
buying a bowling ball instead of renting it every time you go bowling.


All numbers above are rounded up to the nearest whole number.

To see if you should pay by the hour or by the game of bowling simply choose the one with the lowest number between the hour and game price above.

Most bowling alleys charge about 5 times as much per the hour as they do by the game. Thus, if the game price is $5.00, then the hour price is usually about $25.00.

If you guys are serious bowlers and are there to bowl as fast as possible with no need to eat, drink or socialize, then the average time for one person to finish a game will be really low and it usually makes sense to rent the lane by the hour.

If your bowling time is a social event where bowling is just part of the package then you may be better off paying by the game. This way, you can enjoy eating, drinking, and talking and not worry about bowling to get full value for your money.

In conclusion, the faster you bowl, the more likely you are to save money by renting by the hour and the slower you bowl, the more likely you are to save money by paying per game.
