How not to treat your Bowling Ball


Check this out:
Inside Bowling has a number of interesting videos. Here is a link to some of their YouTube offerings: http://www.bowlingquest.com/?preview=trueling Shot – Inside Bowling





Bowling Etiquette
Dealing With Bowlers on Surrounding Lanes:
Yield to the bowler to your right if you’re both up at the same time.
Do not step onto your approach until the other bowlers on adjacent lanes have stepped off theirs.
Make sure you have no bowler on either side of you before you get ready to bowl.(More)


Did You Know?
Ten pin bowling is not the only form of bowling. There is also 9-pin – Not to be confused with No-tap, where one knocks down 9 pins to get a strike. Bulverde This game actually uses 9 pins arranged in a diamond pattern. The game is much older than ten pin and has a different set of rules. Click on the logo above to find out more about actual 9-Pin Bowling.
There is also
Candlepin
and Duckpin bowling. They are played with different balls and pins than 10-pin bowling. Candlepin is most popular in the Canadian Maritime Provinces while Duckpin bowling is played in the Northeastern US and as far south and west as Indianapolis. Note the size and shapes of the pins as well as the small bowling ball.
Lawn Bowling is a popular “other” form of bowling, played mostly in warmer climates such as Florida. It uses a ball that is not round and is played on grass.
Ice Bowling is the opposite end of the scale from lawn bowling. Increasingly popular in northern climates, the game is played on frozen lakes and indoor arenas.
SwissSwiss Bowling A Swiss-system tournament is a non-eliminating tournament format which features a predetermined number of rounds of competition. Each competitor (team or individual) does not play every other.
Scotch Doubles is a game where teams of two bowlers compete while alternating shots, regardless of whether they strike, spare or open.
Baker Bowling is a team format where more than 1 bowler comprises the score of one game. The most common Baker game is with 5 people where each person bowls 2 frames. See link for details.
