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.
Do not be on the approach while others are on their approaches on on either side of your lane.


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.
