Fun facts! Did you know:

  • The earliest form of bowling has been traced back to ancient Egyptian times, around 5000 B.C.E. Artifacts, including nine stone pieces and one stone ball, were discovered in the tomb of an Egyptian child. The goal of the game was to roll the stone ball at the other pieces, while first rolling it through an archway!
  • A six-pack is code for six strikes in a row, and a seven bagger to 11 bagger is, you guessed it, seven to 11 strikes in a row. But the lingo goes way beyond just strikes. The pocket is the area where the ball needs to hit to get a strike. The pocket is between the 1 and 2 pins for left-handers and between the 1 and 3 pins for right-handers. The head pin is the pin that stands at the front and closest to the bowler; also known as the No. 1 pin. And approach has two meanings in bowling: it’s the area right behind the foul line and it’s also when you’re stepping toward the lane before you release the ball. There are all sorts of approach techniques!
