  1. 1. BOWLING By: Trisha Ababa
  2. 2. BOWLING HISTORY
  3. 3. BOWLING HISTORY  Bowling is one of the oldest and most popular games in the world.  Bowling is a sport that can be dated back to circa 3200 BC. In the 1930's, a British anthropologist named Sir Flinders Petrie discovered a collection of objects in a child's grave in Egypt that appeared to be used for a primitive form of bowling.
  4. 4. BOWLING HISTORY • Bowling came from ancient Egypt back in 3200 BC. Where it was found by a British anthropologist named Sir Flinders Petrie in a child’s grave. Then in Germany during 300 AD, it was found by William Pehle. It continued on in the United States in the 1800’s, where the tenpin game became popular because the nine pin was considered was outlawed as a gambling game. It continued on even during modern times as it is a popular game with technology being used to help improve the game.
  5. 5. COURT DIMENSION AND VENUE
  6. 6. COURT DIMENSION AND VENUE • A bowling lane is 42 inches wide and 60 feet long, from the foul line to the head pin. • The two lines of dots are called approach dots, with the first set located 12 feet away from the foul line and the second set is 15 feet away from the foul line. • The entire lane is normally not oiled, with the final few feet normally left dry. It is oiled to serve as protection from the impact of a 16 pound ball. • The reason for this is, greater friction exists between the ball and a dry surface, as opposed to that between the ball and an oiled surface.
  7. 7. EQUIPMENT AND GEARS
  8. 8. EQUIPMENT AND GEARS • What you need in playing bowling is a bowling ball and pins. • You may also need shoes that can withstand slippery places. • However there are two types of bowling balls, the tenpin bowling ball and the five pin bowling ball. The tenpin is bigger than the five pin and it has three holes that are mostly used for holding the ball. The five pin is smaller and it doesn’t have three holes in its surface and it is more lighter than the other.
  9. 9. RULES OF THE GAME
  10. 10. RULES OF THE GAME • The rules of the game are simple. • Primary goal is to knock off all the pins to gain scores. The game consist of ten frames. In each frame the bowler (player) has two chances to knock off the pins. If the bowler is able to knock down all the pins in on strike, it is called a strike. • If the bowler does it with two it is called a spare.
  11. 11. OFFICIALS
  12. 12. OFFICIALS “Most of the time there are no officials. It's usually up to the bowlers and coaches to police themselves and their opponents. This is because there are few judgment calls necessary in bowling (versus, for example, a football referee trying to see whether the ball crossed the goal line) because of electronic scoring and foul line monitoring. If the scoring system miscounts the pins, the bowler will alert the other team that the count is wrong, the opponent will agree that it's wrong, and then someone will change the score in the computer.”( Daniel Leonard,Sep.30,2014)
