5-pin bowling overview / rules
Five-pin bowling is a popular Canadian bowling variant. Unlike most other forms of bowling, pins have different scoring point values depending on their location in the V-shape formation. Knocking over the centre pin is worth the most, with the two outermost pins worth the least.
As a national sport program, Special Olympics Canada has created official rules based upon the Canadian 5-Pin Bowling Associations’ (CFPBA) rules for 5-Pin Bowling competitions. CFPBA rules shall be employed except when they are in conflict with the Special Olympics Canada Official Sports Rules.
There will be over 160 Special Olympics athletes from 19 Alberta affiliates and N.W.T competing in 5-pin bowling at the 2023 Winter Games.
Events will be divisioned according to each athlete’s season average prior to the competition and is divided between male and female for singles competition.
- Singles will score an individual’s results from three games played which includes scratch, handicap, and average score, total average and total.
- Teams of five bowlers will score according to the combined results of all bowlers, using the scoring methods of the Singles event.
