Guide to Bowling Terms

  • Delivering the ball

it simply means to throw the ball. Here’s how to do it. Step up to the bowling lane and put the ball in front of your face to aim (the arrows placed on the lane is a good tool for aiming). 

Make sure that your foot is not over the line on the floor. Take 3 steps forward by starting with your non-dominant foot. Simultaneously, swing your arm backwards, then forwards in a smooth arc. 

Your steps and the swinging of your arm should be in sync. Release and deliver the ball after the third step. Stepping over the foul line will count as a penalty.

  • Strike

It is knocking down all the pins with your first shot. Getting a strike will give you the possible highest score. Achieve consecutive strikes and you’re bound to win the game. With effort and lots of practice, you can accomplish this feat.

  • Spare

If you hadn’t knocked down all the pins on your first try, knocking the remaining pins with your second ball is called a spare.

  • Strikeout

On the 10th and final frame, you will have the chance to throw the ball thrice. When you throw three strikes in a row, this is known as a strikeout.

  • Gutters

These are the shallow ditches on each side of the bowling lane. Avoid the gutters at all costs. When delivering the ball, always aim for the center. It will help keep the ball on the lane.

  • Gutter Ball

This is when your bowling ball veers off the lane and falls into the gutter.

  • The Approach

This is the open space, before the lane, where a bowler delivers their ball.

  • The Lane

It is the surface where bowlers must roll their ball.

  • Split

A split happens when the pins you have knocked down are in the center. This results in a huge gap between the remaining pins making it hard to score a spare.

  • Turkey

When you score 3 strikes in a row at any point of the game, except for the 10th frame, this is called a turkey.
