Bowling has a number of benefits. It is a simple game to learn, does not require training at an early age in order to become proficient, burns calories, and is a great way to relieve stress and develop social bonds.

Taking down all the pins (or as many as possible) demands sophisticated hand-eye coordination. The body’s motion and the moment of ball release must be coordinated to send the ball down a 60-foot lane to a precise point. When only a few pins are left standing after a first roll, the target point is very small and even more precise aim is required. The mental awareness to develop a solid strategy and carry it out forces players to keep their skills sharp.
