White House Hosts Hundreds of Bowlers in May

Comstock/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) -- As a candidate in 2008, President Obama pledged to tear out the White House bowling alley and install a basketball court instead.  

Just over three years later, the basement bowling alley President Truman installed in 1947 is still there -- and apparently being put to good use.

At least 230 visitors to the White House during May came for the express purpose of bowling, according to visitor logs released Friday.

In fact, the underground alley was used every day of the month, except five -- May 14, 16, 18, 21 and 22.

On two days, May 15 and 23, the visitor entries indicate “bowling party.”
