How to Keep Score in Bowling
Scoring in bowling can seem complicated to a beginning bowler, but like other team sports, it really is very simple once you learn a few basic rules. In keeping score, you are adding up the number of pins knocked down in each frame, but there are special rules for getting bonus points, which can increase the score substantially. A game of bowling has 10 frames, or turns, per player. There are 300 possible points per game in bowling. Just adding up the number of pins knocked down during a game would give a maximum score of 120, so understanding how the bonus points work is the key to keeping accurate score.
