How Not to Treat
Your Bowling Ball

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
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.

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.
