Bowling Sports

Bowling is a general term referring to a series of sports in which a player rolls or throws a ball towards a target. There are two main variations. In 'pin bowling', the aim is usually to knock over pins at the end of a lane. In 'target bowling', the aim is usually to get the ball as close to a mark as possible.
