Here are a few simple guidelines to help make your bowling
experience more pleasurable.
Be ready to bowl when the
pins are set. Do not bowl until the pinsetting machine has completed
its cycle and the sweepbar is raised, otherwise you may damage the ball
Do not use another player's ball
without their permission.
Do not take too long to
aim or get set up when you are on the approach.
Stay on your approach while
delivering the ball. Step down off the approach after making each
Observe lane courtesy.
The bowler on the right should bowl if both reach the approach at the
same time. Stay off the approach while you wait.
Good bowling requires concentration.
Bowlers should always keep in mind when others are preparing to bowl,
excessive movement or noise could be distracting. When a player
is ready to bowl, give them the courtesy of making their shot without
interference, as you will want the same courtesy when it is your turn.
Excessive "lofting" hurts
your game and damages the lane.
Refrain from using abusive language
or obscene gestures.
Play the game to win, but
be a gracious loser.
Remember, good sportsmanship
is always the key to a successful game.
