Is Bowling a Sport?

An activity that is often not seen as a sport, the sport of bowling. Bowling has already begun with the Egyptians, and the current version as we know it today, has its origins in the United States. For many bowling just a business that occasionally made with friends. But bowling is a sport which is practiced by many in the Netherlands bowlers.

Misunderstandings about sport bowling

Many people have no idea what exactly to say comes with it to get high in the sport of bowling. Many don’t even know that there is such a thing as bowling clubs. These exist, and nearly every town and village with a bowling has a compound.
In the Netherlands, there are almost 20,000 people who Bowl as a sport. In America, this number is many times higher. Just a few facts about this sport, to clear up any misunderstandings:

  • Bowling is recognized in the Netherlands as a sport with its own Federation/Confederation.
  • The League, the Dutch Bowling Federation, affiliated to the NOC * NSF.
  • Bowling has been a demonstration sport in the Olympic Games, namely, in 1988.
  • Netherlands is known as one of the strongest bowling countries in the world, especially among women.
  • Bowling in teams of 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 people sometimes played against each other.
  • Each year in the Netherlands Cities meeting, where the best players from each club in groups of five.
  • During the competitions, it is not allowed to smoke or consume alcohol.
  • Often the question: “If you roll than just beats?” There is no throwing nothing but strikes! The highest you can get per game is 300 points. This is sometimes done with, but it is rare.

Tactics in bowling sport

When bowling does more than look throw as hard as possible. To explain all this technology would be very time consuming, so you better go along with the local bowling club.
When it comes to tactics has been to say something more, with perhaps the most common question: why do you throw a curve? This is not so easy to say, without any explanation. At the bowling every game for which a layer of oil, it is made with a so-called oil machine. This oil is as a protection of ground material, but is also intended to provide a greater challenge. The oil may be placed in different patterns on the course, different in length, quantity, and distribution. But why, then, with a curve?If justice is thrown on the headpin, then the risk of a split. The split is often difficult combinations to throw. For more measures to make the pins, so there is a greater chance that they fall over, bowlers use a curve. As a result, the ball can get better in your pocket, the right side of the front pin and the chance of a strike. The oil has a great influence on the amount of curve to be fed to a ball. For example, if more oil than will be necessary with a small angle that played as the ball gets more resistance from the oil. How you can give more or less angle, once again has to do with technology, and I’m not going on.

Boards

Anyone who has ever go bowling, have noticed that the bowling alley consists of plates, called the boards.
A bowling alley consists of 39 panels, with the front PIN to the Middle card 20. These boards are very important in the tactic of bowling, as this can be determined when you aim, what adjustments should be made if something does not work correctly in tactics or how far it must be pressed to shed off the extra with the same motion. There are all the systems prepared to quit spares in bowling, for example, the 3-6-9 system, see again 3-6-9 bowling. The first line is being taught to beginners are often other arrow, which is the second arrow to the right, is the Board 10. The Board where the ball should come out of the Board’s 17, it is the best opportunity for a strike.

Modifications

There are several ways to make adjustments in the bowling sport, for example, in speed, the Board that is affected or balkeuze. The balkeuze is on a higher level is very important because the bowling ball is made so that there is a different answer to the oil. The majority of this variability is due to the shape of the nucleus of the ball, in which case the weight block. A ball with a symmetric weight blocks is much easier straight, then a ball does not. The balkeuze can also be due to the oil that has changed, namely, it is shifted a little oil on each roll. Instead of touching each other, so the Board can also used a different ball.

Additional information?

There is still a lot to say when it comes to technology and tactics. If you want to know more, you can go to the nearest bowling Hall. Some also have a bowling shop, where you can learn more about balkeuze and the adjustments that can be made of the ball. Have fun bowling and maybe up to the job!
