The length of a professional bowling lane is sixty feet from the foul line to the first pin or head pin. Sixty feet is seen as a standard in professional sports as it is also the distance from pitcher to hitter in baseball.
A regulation 10-pin bowling lane is 60 feet from the foul line to the headpin.
60 feet from foul line to center of head pin.
The lane is 60 feet from the foul line to the center of the head pin.
The area from the foul line back to end of the lane is called the "approach".
It is the line where the approach meets the lane.
Most basic fouls would be bowling out of turn, crossing the foul line and using the wrong lane :-)
The approach, first 10 feet after the foul line, and from 10 feet before the pin deck to the end of the lane are maple and the 46 feet between the two maple parts are pine on a "traditional" bowling lane. You can get that at a lumberyard. New bowling lanes are synthetic.
