Bowling Rules! Some Reminders on How the Game Should Be Played
Posted by Nick Niesen on October 29th, 2010
Bowling is a fairly simple game, which may be the reason why so many like it; making it one of the most played recreational sports today. The rules surrounding the game are even simpler.
Here is a brief look into the rules of bowling as well as some etiquette points you should remember the next time you go to the lanes.
The perfect game is scored at 300 points, meaning that the bowler was able to accomplish 12 consecutive strikes in the game.
- Be ready to bowl when it is your turn to avoid lags in playing.
- Only one bowler can play at a time. The rule of thumb, should there be any contention, is to allow the bowler on the right to go ahead.
- When not in play, stay out of sight and/or seated behind the bowler currently playing. This is to avoid distractions. Heckling and/or making unnecessary sounds at any time during a play is prohibited as well.
You can now hit the lanes with more than just knowing how to knock pins down with a ball. You will develop a healthy dose of sportsmanship as well as patience and consideration for others - and that?s always a good thing!
