The basic idea of bowling is to roll a bowling ball down the lane and knock down all 10 pins with one shot, when doing so this is what is known as a strike. If you knock all 10 pins down in two rolls that is called a spare, and when you are unable to knock down all 10 pins in your two rolls that is known as an open.

 

Most bowlers will try throwing the ball as hard as possible at the middle of the pins, but actually it’s the worst way to achieve a strike. Throwing the ball through the middle of the pins will increase your chance of leaving hard to make spares. The best way of getting a strike is to roll the ball off to one side and try to make the ball go into the pins between the first pin and the pin to its right for a right handed bowler and left for a left handed bowler. (see picture one)

 

Picture One

The bowling ball is rolling in-between the head pin and 3 pin, mirror image for left handed bowlers.

 

 

A perfect strike for a right handed bowler, the ball will roll through the 1, 3, 5, & 9 Pins. The other 6 pins will be taken out by pin deflection. The 1 pin sends the 2 into the 4, and into the 7. The 5 pin takes out the 8 pin. The 3 pin sends the 6 pin into the 10 pin creating a perfect strike. (see picture two)

 

A perfect strike for a left handed bowler, the ball will roll through the 1, 2, 5, & 8 Pins. The other 6 pins will be taken out by pin deflection. The 1 pin sends the 3 into the 6, and into the 10. The 5 pin takes out the 9 pin. The 2 pin sends the 4 pin into the 7 pin creating a perfect strike. (see picture three)
