“At the bowling alley: A bowler tries to knock down all of the bowling pins and make a strike.”

Ten-pin bowling is a sport where a player rolls a ball down a long, narrow lane in an attempt to knock down ten pins arranged in a triangle at the end of the lane. The objective of the game is to knock down all ten pins in as few rolls as possible. Each player gets two rolls per turn, except in the case of a strike, which is when all ten pins are knocked down on the first roll. A spare is when all ten pins are knocked down in two rolls. The score is based on the number of pins knocked down in each frame, with a perfect score of 300 being achieved by rolling 12 strikes in a row. The game is typically played in groups of up to six players and is a fun and social activity or hobby enjoyed by people of all ages and skill levels.

A bowling alley is a facility where people can play the game of bowling. It typically consists of several lanes, which are long, narrow strips of polished wood or synthetic material where players can roll a ball towards a set of pins at the end of the lane. The alley is usually equipped with automatic pin-setting machines that reset the pins after each roll, and automatic scoring systems that keep track of each player’s score. In addition to the lanes, a typical bowling alley may also have seating areas, food and drink concessions, and other amenities such as arcade games or pool. Bowling alleys are often popular destinations for group outings, birthday parties, and other social events, and they can be found in many cities and towns around the world.
