Bowling Clip Art Page 4

Bowling: In the United States nine pin bowling became a favorite target for gamblers. This led the government of the state of Connecticut to pass an 1841 law that prohibited owning a ninepin bowling alley. This was an attempt to fragment the gambling community by making it impossible for them to meet in the bowling alleys where they usually gathered.

To get around this law, the gamblers in the area simply changed the rules of the game. They added an extra pin to the bowling setup; thereby making their alleys into tenpin bowling alleys. The tenpin bowling alleys were technically legal to own and operate simply because they hadnít existed when Connecticut banned the game of ninepins.

The game of tenpins proved to be more fun than its predecessor, and ten is the number of pins that we still play with today. Top End Sports
