Bowling Score Card

Scoring in bowling is calculated on a rolling basis and is based on the outcome of each frame. In bowling, there are 10 frames. A frame is made up of two bowls, so the bowler gets to throw the ball down the lane at the pins twice per frame.

There are 10 pins set up at the back of the lane. If you knock all 10 pins on the first bowl, it is called a strike. If you eventually knock all 10 pins on you second bowl, it is called a spare. Finally, if you fail to knock down all pins it’s called an open frame.

When you bowl, you will see the following symbols appear on the screen that indicate the total running score on the current frame.

X – STRIKE

/ - SPARE

- - No pins knocked down

4 5 – 1st roll (4 pins down), 2nd roll (5 pins down) = total 9 pins knocked down

Perfect Scores

The minimum score for a single bowling game is 0 and the maximum score is a 300. For each frame, a person gets two attempts to knock over all of the pins. A perfect score would be a strike for every frame.

Open Frames

An open frame is when the bowler fails to knock down all 10 pins with both bowls. An open frame is most common for amateur players and is scored by adding up the sum of the number of pins that were knocked over on both bowls.

For example, if you knock two pins over on the first bowl, and six pins over on the second attempt, then the open frame score would be 8 points.

Scoring for a match where just open frames are scored is simple but scoring gets a little complicated when there are spares and strikes involved.

Spares

A spare, indicated by a slash (/) on a scoreboard, happens when you knock down all 10 of the pins on your second attempt for the frame. When a spare is earned, it is used to calculate the score on the next frame.

Strikes

A strike is also worth 10 points, but instead of taking the score of the first roll of the next frame, the total score of the next two rolls is taken.
