Reservations are alway recommended at ibowl.ca Family Fun Center so that when one shows up a lane is available and we can schedule the lanes to meet demand.
Most bowling alleys would prefer a reservation be made by bowlers, however there is one bowling alley that is almost impossible to get a reservation and that is at the White House. That’s right, you need to know the president or his family to bowl at the White House.
White House bowling action dates back to the Truman administration in 1947, when a two-lane alley was installed in the basement as a birthday present for the president. These were moved to the Old Executive Office Building in 1955 to make way for a mimeograph room. In 1969, President and Mrs. Nixon, both avid bowlers, had a new one-lane alley built (paid for by friends) in an underground workspace area below the driveway leading to the North Portico. Nixon was a very good bowler, often donning classic 60s and 70s bowling shirts for his games.
