Bowling is a recreational activity that requires precision. It is played in a room with a slippery parquet floor. The main elements of the game are the target (ten pins placed 59-66 feet [18-20 meters] away from the player), the bowling ball, and the lane (a strip of parquet 82 feet [25 meters] long and almost 3 feet [almost one meter] wide) that separates the player from the target.
There are different types of competitions, but the most common is ten-pin bowling, found at most bowling alleys, where the goal is to knock down a rack of ten pins. The player has at least a dozen chances to knock down the highest number of pins that he or she can. The winner is the person that knocks down the highest number of pins. In the case of a tie, victory goes to the person who has scored the most strikes during the game (knocking down all 10 pins in one go).
Bowling is a recreational activity that can be enjoyed by all generations. Children as young as seven or eight years old can participate in this entertaining activity. The light weight of the bowling ball (between 7 and 11 pounds [3 and 5 kg]) makes it also suitable for adult and senior players. In the existing facilities in Lanzarote, it is common to see a family, with parents and children, playing a game together.
