Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) Here you will find answers to frequently asked questions
- How do I play a game of bowling?
A single game consists of 10 “frames”, with each frame consisting of two chances to knock down ten pins.
If the player gets a strike in the tenth frame the player earns automatically two bonus shots.
If the player gets a spare in the tenth frame the player earns automatically one bonus shots.
- How many people fit on a lane?
For the ultimate bowling experience without long waiting, we recommend four to six people per game. You can play with 6 – 8 persons on each lane, there are large sitting areas available.
- What is the ideal age to start bowling?
We recommend a minimum age of ca 5 years. With the bumper system the kids are able to hit the pins, – the lightest bowling ball weights 5 lb’s with three or five holes.
- Why do I have to wear bowling shoes at the bowling alley?
- Bowling shoes have a sole that allows sliding when releasing the bowling ball.
- Sneakers or indoor shoes are not permitted (and not suitable).
- The approaches have a special coating, which can be damaged with other shoes. Bowling shoes protect the approaches
- How are points determined in bowling?
All our lanes come with a computerized system that automatically calculates your score for you.
A strike is when you knock down all ten pins at your first attempt in a single frame. A strike counts ten points plus the number of pins you knock down for the entire next frame.
A spare is when you fail to knock down all ten pins at your first attempt in a single frame, but manage to clear the remaining pins at your second attempt. A spare counts ten points plus the number of pins you knock down for your first attempt at the next frame. If not all pins are knocked over in a frame, each pin you knock down earns you a point.
- Ball weight!
The weight of the bowling ball is between 5 — 16 pounds (about 2.25 to about 7.2 kg).
In our bowling alley the bowling balls have different colors. Each of these colors represents a certain weight. Based on the color you can always find your chosen weight at any time. Many recreational bowlers think that a higher ball speed means that more pins will be knocked over. That is not correct.!! As a result, the ball is much less precise and lands frequently in the gutter, since the player unintentionally gives the bowling ball an uncontrolled spin.
