Introduction

Unlike many other sports, the beauty of ten-pin bowling lies in its value as a participator sport, rather than a spectator sport. With all the necessary equipment provided by bowling alleys at affordable prices, and no need for physical or mental excellence, ten-pin bowling is a great equaliser. It is enjoyed by more than 100 million men, women and children from more than 90 different countries on a regular basis, with more people playing worldwide than any other sport except football.

Bowling also has the largest number of registered members of any sport. With players taking it in turns to roll balls in an attempt to knock over the pins standing at the end of the lane, bowling is also great fun. The beauty of the game is that it can be as simple or complex as the player wants. Automated scoreboards keep track of the game so there is also no need to bring your calculator!
