About Ten Pin Bowling:

  • First introduced in Ireland in 1963 but the first indoor alley was opened in New York in 1840.
  • Frame: A single turn for a bowler, constituting one or two rolls, depending on pinfall. A game is made up of 10 frames.
  • Channel/ Gutter: Located on either side of the lane to catch an errant throw.
  • Strike: All ten pins down on the first roll. This is the aim of all bowlers at the start of each frame.
  • Perfect Game – 300 points is the maximum score
  • Double: Two strikes in a row during a single bowling game.
  • Foul: A shot where the bowler’s foot crosses the “foul line” at the end of the approach and start of the lane
  • Spare: All ten pins down on two ball rolls of a frame
  • Turkey: Three strikes in a row during a single bowling game.
  • Wombat: Getting a spare after throwing a gutter ball on the first throw. Derived from coming from ‘Down Under’
