Ten-pin Bowling

Ten-pin bowling is a competitive sport in which a player (the "bowler") rolls a bowling ball down a wooden or synthetic (polyurethane) lane with the objective of scoring points by knocking down as many pins as possible. In the United States, United Kingdom and Australia, the game is commonly referred to as just "bowling". In New England, "bowling" usually refers to the "small-ball" candlepin and sometimes duckpin varieties, which each use much smaller and lighter bowling balls as compared to tenpin bowling, without the need for finger holes in them.
