Tenpin bowling hasn't always been for everyone. Of course it's fun, but definitely not easy for us all. These days it's made possible for many by modern day bumper bowling.

Children young enough to handle a ball can use a steel ramp to launch, in conjunction with the pre-arranged bumper option. People with disabilities that have their motor skills affected or such as blindness can also play tenpin bowling with a minimal amount of help.

The elderly or senior citizens can play too, even if limited strength is a concern for hurling the ball down the lane, the bumper provides assurance that the ball is far less likely to get stuck down near the pins.

Choices or combination - Ramp, bumper or unaltered lane

At AMF Bowling Joondalup, the lanes can be setup to include a bumper and ramp if needed for these very instances.

For those of you not requiring these inclusions, the lane remains unaltered. They can also program a lane to interchange between an experienced bowler and the bumper bowler all on the same game or one lane.

Player names are given at initial setup so that these arrangements can be made and obviously to make sure everybody knows whose turn it is without having to keep track of this or the score.
