Do you like ten pin bowling?!

This common game has become a world-wide hit and is very popular among people from all countries!

In Leeds, there are a number of ten pin bowling places, which are great venues for meeting new people and having fun.

Bowling vocabulary:

it’s your turn – this is what you say to your teammates when they need to play

pins – these are the “sticks” that you knock down with the ball

to bowl – this is the action of rolling the ball along the ground 

a strike – this is when you knock down all of the pins in one go: lots of points!

Some of our students practised their conversational English recently at a ten pin bowling venue in Leeds, just a few minutes around the corner from the Leeds School of English.
