How a Bowling Alley Works

Lane, ball and pins are needed on a bowling alley.

Lane

Each lane is 60 feet long from the error line to the cavalry. The runway is assembled from 39 planks. T, usually right-handed people count the order of boards from left to right while the left-handed person is the opposite.

Each arrow in seven arrows on the runway is separated by 5 boards. They were used as points of view. The first arrow counted from the right is on the 5th board, the second arrow is on the 10th board so on with the remaining arrows.

In addition to the arrow used as a point of view, the dots can also be used for sighting. Players often imagine in the beginning a line connecting the dots to the arrows to form a ball rolling. Use the arrows to watch as their distance to the error line is closer to the bars.

The starting line is 15 feet long. Behind the starting line there are two rows of dots. They act as reference points for each throw. This does not mean that when we start we have to stand right above the dots.

Ball

Bowling balls are made of hard materials (mostly made of plastic), with different weights and colors. The weight of the ball is measured in pounds and the weight of the ball is marked with the number written on the ball. The lightest is number 6, the heaviest is number 16 (7.3 kg). The ball has 3 holes to keep the finger in. Before playing, you should choose the right weight ball and the medium holes to keep your fingers from being too tight or too wide.

Pin (kegel)

The pin is made of durable materials and has the same size and is automatically arranged on the runway. Each kegel has a certain position in numbers.
