Lately i've been in the 100+ range.. yeah, I know. Not so good aha. What about you, what do you generally score when you bowl? What's the highest you've scored?

Only go a couple of times a year and normally average about 100-120, best score ever was 165, and then promptly got 95 the next game

I have had nights like that in my bowling leagues where I would bowl a good game like a 178 the other night and then followed it with a 95 game and then came back with a 131 game. This past thursday I bowled a 117, 158 and a 224. The 224 is my career second best game. My best game is a 230. As everyone can see, I am very inconsistent with my bowling. :-)

The first time i went to bowling .. it was around 9 years back.. till that time i didnt even know what bowling actually is.. I went with my cousins and they just told me what to do.. And u would just laugh at the score i made.. I hardly crossed 60 and most of the times the ball went into the Gutter.. After a long time i started doing bowling about 6 months back when i came into job and the first time i played here ..i scored 115.. i was too happy and that gave me an inspiration to score more.. So every time i play i score above 100.. around 140+ i score every time.. though i have been reluctant to cross 200 .. my highest score is 196 till today and i m still trying to cross 200.. My highest scores include 196 189 186 179 175..So i hav been unlucky many a times not to cross 200...Ha ha ha

Seems like there are many pro bowlers here. I am real bad at bowling and my average score is below 100 Somehow, my bowling ball does not hit the pins they way I want it to. This is perhaps the reason why I do not really like to bowl.

I haven't been bowling for ages but back when we used to bowl every Saturday night, I used to average around 160 per game. The highest I evewr bowled was like a 200 or a little over.

My scores are generally in the 100's as well, usually between 100-150. Sometimes I have really bad nights and do not make it to 100 but that does not happen too often. I am able to get into the high 100's when I am doing well and my highest game ever is 230. I have had 6 or 7 200 games since I started bowling five I years ago. I just bought a new bowling ball yesterday with fingertips so I am hoping to improve my scores.

My highest games are 244, 214, 210, 205, 202, 199, and 197. Not too good; I still need a lot of work on my form.

When I was younger I used to be on a league we were 2nd in the league which is awesome. I used to average about a 179 when I was younger, which I think is pretty good for a kid. Now that I am older and out of practice I go more for fun, and to compete with my friends for stupid stuff, like who pays for dinner tonight., Now I average about a 140. I normally play like 3 games when we go and I'll get like a 140 the first game and go down from there ending with like a 98 the third game..Bowling is so much fun, but have you noticed how expensive it is getting? It used to be a cheap way to spend time with friends now it is On sundays $2.00 a game, regular $3.00 a game and if you want shoes its $2.50 to rent shoes. Thank goodness I have my own shoes and ball..Thank you for letting me share my opinion..
