How to play bowling


Choose the right ball for you, as your chances of winning will depend on it. Each ball has three holes for the middle, ring and thumb — they should fit you perfectly in size so that the ball easily slips off your hand, and at the same time you didn’t have to do it much compress when held. As a rule, balls from 8 to 10 are suitable for girls, and for guys, respectively, are heavier.


Accept the right rack. Step 4 steps away from the foul line. Typically, there are special points in front of the track, serving as a reference point for the start of steps. Stand flat, put your feet together. The right hand you hold the ball to, bend at a 90 degree angle so that the brush with the ball looks at you and is parallel to the floor. With your left hand stick a little bit.


Perform the correct sending of the ball. To do this, take 4 steps, starting with the right foot. During these, you should lower your left hand, unstraighten the right with the ball and start it behind the back for the message. The last step is performed before the foul line with your left foot, at the same time you squat slightly on your left foot and send the ball into the center of the triangle of kegles. The right leg should remain straight at the back, behind the left foot.


Try to knock down as many kegles as possible from the first time. Therefore, you need to aim at the center of the triangle of kegles. However, when sending the ball it is better to look not at skittles, but at the special arrows drawn at the beginning of the track. If from the first time to knock out the strike (10 kegs) failed, the second time it is necessary to knock down the remaining skittles.


The game consists of 10 rounds (fames), for each of them the participant is given 2 attempts to send the ball. After each round or strike, the skittles are displayed again. In the last round, a player can get an extra, third attempt at sending a ball if they struck out a strike or missed completely. At the end of the game, the total number of points each contestant has is counted.


The total points at the end of the game consists of the number of kegles and bonuses downed. For a strike, for example, there are 10 scores and a bonus equal to the number of downed keagles in the subsequent two throws.
