FUNDAMENTALS OF THE LANE




GETTING TO KNOW THE BOWLING LANE
A bowling lane is comprised of several different parts:

1. The approach is the area where you walk to throw your bowling ball towards the pins.

2. The lane is the area where your ball rolls towards the pins. It is made up of 40, 1-inch wood boards and travels 60 feet, down to the pins.

3. The gutters are on either side of the lane. The gutters are an area you want to avoid, they are there to catch balls which roll off the lane.

4. There are 10 pins located at the end of the lane, shaped in a triangular fashion. The lead pin is known as the 1 pin. Behind the 1 pin are two other pins known as the 2 & 3 pins going from left to right. Behind these pins are the 4, 5, & 6 pins and behind those are the 7, 8, 9, & 10 pins, also moving from left to right.
