Important elements about which it is worth to remember: such bowling has to be near large institutes, near metro station or the intersection with several routes of public transport, fashionable youth music has to sound here, work as Dee Jay with a name, and also the security service able to keep order at such unpredictable public. The closed bowling club. This option of bowling which can be created if among your acquaintances there are at least ten powers that be.

Proceeding from the concept chosen by the investor other parameters of the project are set. For example, it is hardly expedient to the closed club to place many paths, and good restaurant with the skilled chef, as well as professional protection, will not prevent. In the center with the family concept entertainment zones will be relevant to children and children’s attractions. Also it is possible to include automatic sides and special spheres for children in a complete set of the equipment, for adults billiards will become demanded additional entertainment. Locker rooms are necessary for sports bowling for athletes, shower, left-luggage offices. Organically shops of professional stock for bowling will fit into them. Youth bowling will attract visitors with the round-the-clock operating mode, existence of a disco, fashionable DJs, a wide choice of alcoholic beverages and cocktails. Room and its equipment. Standard length of a path for bowling – 25,41 m (including a running start zone, a path per se and the car for installation of size – a pinspotter). Plus of 1-1,5 more m will occupy pass for service of pinspotter, and also 3-5 m – a recreation area for players. Dopolnitelnaya Square is “eaten” by also technical passes, the place for bar and billiards. Width of the hall is defined also proceeding from quantity of paths. Two require 3,46 m, for 3 – 5,25 m, for 4 – 6,85 m, for 6 – 10,23 m etc. About 55 sq.m are the share of only one path (it on a minimum), and room height cannot be lower than 4 m in any way (for comfort of players). There are no special technical requirements to the room, even, on the contrary, construction norms are less strict, than it is not required from trade, residential and office buildings, windows, special communications – too so construction of one square meter under bowling costs much cheaper, than in a case with the fitness centers, movie theaters, beauty shops, etc. Main expenses acquisition and installation of equipment. Full bowling club is not only several paths, a set of spheres and slippers, but also the whole infrastructure for rest where the visitor can spend all evening. For this reason at the choice of the suitable room or at construction new it is necessary to provide convenient access roads from thoroughfares and a parking lot of cars. The main detail of the equipment – a pinspotter – special and rather difficult mechanism for collecting and arrangement of the brought-down size. To its invention the special person had to carry out this labor-consuming and rather dangerous operation. In a design of a pinspotter more than three thousand various details, and therefore the major requirement to it – reliability and durability. The complete set includes also system of the automated return of spheres (its conveyor passes under a platform flooring); system of automatic counting of points (its main component – the monitor on which opposite to names of all players points are displayed); path. For a covering of paths use a tree or synthetic materials – and if the first looks “more expensive”, then experts recommend to choose the last because of durability. At desire to save to a third of cost it is possible to buy the so-called “restored” equipment. However on it the guarantee is not given. Size without beer – money for wind. The additional profit is made by good bar with alcohol. It provides not less than 40% of profit to club. To 70% of players in bowling – men which the invitation “to drive spheres” directly is associated with the offer “drink beer”. And here the billiard tables established in many clubs do not make essential profit, carrying out rather a function of additional entertainment: visitors of bowling clubs drive “small spheres” only waiting for line to “big”.
