      Bowling courses for kids

      On the Bizibuz platform, bowling is a sport that covers both pin bowling (rolling a ball toward pins) and target bowling (rolling a ball toward another target). In pin bowling, a heavy ball is rolled down a long, narrow lane toward a group of objects called pins in order to knock down more pins than an opponent. Common types of pin bowling include ten-pin, candlepin, duckpin, nine-pin and five-pin. In target bowling, the aim is usually to get the ball as close to a mark as possible. The surface in target bowling may be grass, gravel, or synthetic. Lawn bowls, bocce, carpet bowls, pétanque, and boules may have both indoor and outdoor varieties. Curling is also related to bowls.

      Children can start bowling as early as three years of age depending on the weight of the ball used. Bowling as a child activity is increasing in popularity both as a birthday party format as well as a regular sport. This is due to the following benefits of bowling for children
