FOR ALL AGES

These 90+ Bowling Puns Are Rock and Bowl!

You'll be bowled over to learn bowling pins have to be 38.1cm (15 inches) in diameter.

Bowling, or ten-pin bowling, is an indoor sport in which a large, heavy ball is rolled down a lane towards ten 'pins' at the end of the lane.

The goal of bowling is to have knocked down as many pins as you can over ten rounds. Each round gives you two turns to knock down ten pins, then the next round starts off with a new set of pins.

Whilst we're sure most of you love to hit the bowling alleys, you'll be bowled over by these surprising facts that you probably aren't familiar with! Did you know that bowling pins have to be 38.1cm in diameter (15 inches)? And bowling balls can have up to 12 holes in them, as long as you can prove the use of each one. Amuse your friends with this bowling knowledge; three strikes is called a 'turkey', four a 'ham bone', six a 'wild turkey', and nine a 'golden turkey'.

If you're considering a birthday party at a bowling alley, take a few puns with you as they certainly do strike the funny bone. Or if you're more into climbing, take a look at these puns.
