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.

International Candlepin Bowling Association
Candlepin
bowling is played with different balls and pins than either Duckpin or regular 10-pin bowling. The pins are not tapered and the balls are softball sized. Players are allowed 3 balls to down all the pins – Dead wood is NOT cleared away between tries.Candlepin is most popular in the Canadian Maritime Provinces. Note the size and shapes of the pins as well as the small bowling ball.

Duckpin BowlingDuckpin Bowling is a variation of 10-pin bowling, played mostly in the Northeastern US and as far south and west as Indianapolis. The balls and pins are smaller than those in 10-pin bowling and players are allowed 3 tries to knock down all the pins.

BowlsLawn 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 DoublesScotch 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.
