What to Expect the First Time You Go Bowling

Although bowling has been around for centuries, and the majority of towns and cities have at least one bowling alley nearby, there will always be those rare individuals who have never had the experience of bowling their first game. If you have never gotten closer to a bowling alley than Wii bowling on your gaming system, and you are ready to experience bowling as a reality, there are some things you should know before you go. An understanding of the types of bowling alley equipment that are available, and your different options, will help you feel more at home on your first bowling venture.

The Bowling Shoes

Special bowling shoes are a requirement at bowling alleys to protect the floors. You have the option to either bring your own or rent them from the bowling alley. Some people feel uncomfortable wearing shoes that someone else has already worn, so they prefer to purchase their own. They are available in a wide range of prices, so you can choose those that you like and which fit into your budget. Those that are rented at the bowling alley are sanitized. Make sure you wear socks when you go to bowl, so you don’t have to touch the shoes directly, for better peace of mind. The shoes are paid for at a special counter in the bowling alley. You typically leave your shoes with them until you are ready to return the rentals.

Paying for the Bowling Game

You will also pay for the bowling before you get started. Each game consists of 10 frames, during which you can score anywhere from 0 to 300. Each bowler has two chances to knock down the pins in each frame. One of the reasons that bowling continues to be a favorite pastime for all ages is the low cost of playing, and the fun!

Bowling is also easy to catch on to. When you take your entire family or a group of friends, you can take your time and enjoy yourselves, and have a lot of fun for your investment. Call us to learn more about bowling alleys and bowling alley equipment at 310 532-6091.
