Bowling At Richardson's Family Entertainment Centre, Lowestoft

Bowling – it’s the best!

Is it those noises and sounds – so unique to Ten Pin Bowling? You know the ones. The rumble of the ball. The crash of the pins. Is it the thrill of getting a ‘strike’? What is it that makes Bowling so special? Nobody knows! Because the joy of Bowling is a magical thing.

Some special secret makes this exhilarating game the best choice ever for family fun, or birthday parties, or team outings. Even a date night – best not to get too competitive there!

The fourteen Bowling lanes at Richardson’s Family Entertainment Centre Lowestoft are brilliant. All the tech is in place, including automatic bumpers for people who might need a little extra help. There’s a wide choice of Bowling balls so you can choose the weight and finger hole size that suit you best. We even provide Bowling shoes, although you can wear your own (flat – soled please) shoes if you prefer.

Want a refresher on the rules? It’s pretty straightforward.

The goal is to knock over as many pins as possible with your bowling ball and score points. You knew that!

Otherwise the key rules are these –

1. Each game has 10 rounds – we call them frames

2. You get to bowl up to 2 balls per frame

3. If you knock down all the pins in one throw (a strike), you’ll get double the score on whatever you bowl on your next frame.

4. If you knock down all the pins in two throws (a spare), you’ll get double the points of only your first throw in the next frame.

5. When you get to the final frame and score a strike, you win two extra balls to throw. If you throw a spare in your final round, you’ll win an extra ball.

6. You are not allowed to step over the black line at the start of the bowling lane. If you cross the line, you won’t get any points for the pins you bowl over with that ball.

The top score for 10-pin bowling is 300 points!
