All things bowling

Bowling is a game played indoors on a flat surface called an alley, or lane. The players roll a ball with their hand to knock down the ten pins—the pins are arranged in a triangle with four on the back row and three in the front. It is also known as ten pins.

History and Timeline

Bowling has a very long and illustrious history — in fact, it’s believed to be the oldest sport known to man. The earliest known forms of bowling appeared in ancient Egypt, sometime around 300 A.D. From there, the game made its way through Europe and eventually into North America by way of Dutch settlers in the early 1600s. Today, bowling is a popular sport worldwide: it’s practiced by over 100 million people all over the world. In the United States alone, over 70 million people bowl every year. Although bowling was brought to America as a leisurely activity for wealthy landowners and their families, it quickly became a national pastime thanks to several invention patents awarded in 1819 for “improved alleys” that allowed wider access to more people at the same time. Today, Bowling is an international sport played by millions of men women and children alike all across our great country! Ready more fun?
