How to Keep and Take Score in Bowling
How to Keep and Take Score in Bowling
Modern alleys do it automatically, but it is important to know how to keep score in bowling.Most alleys today have automatic scoring, so you really won’t need to know how to take score in bowling.
If you are looking to be a more serious bowler, or just curious, here is how you take score in ten pin bowling. The game of bowling is separated by ten frames. Each player has two shots each frame to knock all the pins down. There are several variations of bowling games. If you are bowling at an alley for casual fun and entertainment then you will probably be playing ten pin bowling. Here is a free bowling score sheet for you to download and print out and use to keep bowling scores.
The highest score someone can achieve is 300. This is a perfect game, and very few people have accomplished this score. In score keeping a game of bowling each set of ten pins is called a frame and an entire bowling game has ten frames. The object of each frame in bowling is to knock over all ten pins, and the object of the game is to have the highest score.
First you will write each player’s name on the scoring sheet in the name area. Next you will start the first frame and count how many pins were knocked down.
Find that players name on the sheet and write down how many pins were knocked down in the small box to the top left of the frame box.
Write the number of pins knocked down on the second try next to where u wrote the first try. Add these two numbers to get the total amount of pins knocked down in the larger of the boxes for that frame.
If a player in your group bowls a strike put an X in the frame box. A strike is worth ten points added to their pins that they knock down in their next two shots. If the next two shots are both strikes, that would be a total of 30 points for the first strike. Each frames strike then also gets added to the next two shots. Because of this, you may not know what a bowlers score is on that frame for up to two more frames.
A spare is when a player knocks down the remaining pins left behind from their first turn. When a player bowls a spare put a / in the frame box, a spare is worth ten points, plus the amount bowled on the next ball. Record this number in the totals area of that frame the spare was bowled on. You will not know what the bowlers score is until the next frame!
If after the first ball in a frame the pins that are left are “split” (not next to each other), the number of pins rolled should be circled. If a bowler goes past the foul line, the turn is fouled and an F should be placed for that turn. And balls knocked over on a foul do not count. A foul does not forfeit the entire frame, so if a person fouled their first shot in a frame, they can still pick up a spare by knocking all 10 pins down on their next ball.
The tenth frame is a little different. If you bowl a strike, you are still entitled to your 2 extra balls. So If you bowl a strike, the pins are reset just as it’s a new frame. The same goes for a spare. If you bowl a spare, the pins are reset and you get to bowl one more ball. The scoring remains the same though. If however, you bowl a strike or spare after your initial strike or spare in the 10th frame, you do not get to bowl any extra balls. The most balls you can roll in the 10th frame is 3.
This is an example of one person’s bowling score:Once you have done all ten frames add all the players’ totals and enter them in the area given. Next, see who won and who is going to buy the winner a round of drinks or snacks. There you go, you now know all about bowling scores.

Basic Bowling Techniques
Basic Bowling Techniques
Let us show you the basic bowling techniques.You may be a seasoned bowling vet or just a beginner looking for some tips to improve your game. Either way, we will show the proper bowling techniques that are tried and true that will help you improve your game. To bowl your personal best, you have to constantly develop your own techniques. Your personal best involves skills that need to be consistent and practiced regularly to perk up your score and averages. To do so you must practice, practice, practice. With practice, you will begin to understand which bowling techniques work best for you.
The two basic measures that need to be taken to hone your skills, when perfected, can improve many aspects of your overall game and raise your average. Your swing and your approach are the two most important skills to master. Once you have consistently mastered these skills you can become the bowler that everybody envies. Your approach has two key ingredients to start with, your ball position and your stance.
Your stance begins the whole setup for a perfect strike or a great game. If your stance is not right on, the whole turn is wasted. A proper stance consists of bending the knees slightly and your spine should be angled forward slightly. Your leg position gives you the control you need to thrust off with strength and stability. This is a basic bowling technique that you must master.
Once your stance is correct, you can now focus on the position of your ball. How you hold the ball and where against your body you hold the ball depict your swing. Usually, you want to hold the ball even with your waist during your approach. Smaller people can hold the ball higher to add power to the swing.
Now that you are in proper position, you may want to work on your swing. Your swing involves four basic bowling techniques - timing, release, rotation and your finish. Timing is key if you are aiming to hit a 200+ bowling average. When your timing is off even by a little the whole swing is thrown off. Timing leads directly to releasing the ball to get the perfect shot. For the utmost control and precision, your ball should be released when your arm is at the bottom part of the swing.
The rotation of your ball comes into play at the precise time that the ball is released. Rotate your fingers a little just as you release the ball. This should produce a hook shot as the ball crashes into the pins. When you finish, your arm should be pointing up, as this is good form. Mainly if you finish in this form you will have a powerful swing and your revolutions will be high. Again, mastering these techniques will greatly improve your game.
All serious bowlers usually have two main balls that they use. These balls and grips have been custom fitted for the bowler specifically. The reason for two balls is that a heavy ball and a lighter ball have different uses. A heavy ball should be used on the first shot and the lighter ball for spares.
Your strike ball (the heavier ball) should be used for the first shot in hopes that it will be a strike. To bowl a strike, start at the center dot. When you are in position, aim for the second arrow from the right side and rotate when you release the ball to create a hook shot right into the pins head on.
Knowing the basic bowling techniques will help you raise your score.These bowling techniques will come with practice and should be repeated until you have them down pat. Sometimes having a friend or bowling mate observe your form and swing can help you assess your weakness in your stance or swing. Some bowlers even use an empty lane and a heavier “practice ball” to sharpen their techniques. The main part of your personal technique should be mostly mental and form.
Here are the 10 basic steps for a perfect release:
Good luck and don’t forget that practice does make perfect.
