Bowling Etiquette Tips


Keep good sportsmanship and consideration of other people in mind and you should have all of the bases covered. Here are a few tips that should help.

When Open Bowling:
  • Always wear bowling shoes.
  • Try and stay behind the foul line.
  • Wait for bowlers on the lanes to your right or left.
  • Do not stray from your lane after delivering the ball.
  • Keep food and drinks in designated areas.
  • Try and keep your fun and games to within your own group.
When League Bowling:
  • Show up in time for practice
  • Be prepared to take your regular turn on the lanes.
  • Try not to take too much time on the approaches before delivery.
  • We all get emotional just try and not let them interfere with others while they are bowling.
  • Keep one ball per person on the rack.
  • Don't try and take two lane courtesy on either side when everyone else is taking one. It throws off the rhythm of the league.
