Corsicana Park Lanes Invites you to join us for a Friday Night of $15.00 FUN!!!
Every Friday we Have what we call 9 Pin No Tap! While playing 9-pin no-tap, hitting down just 9 pins is the same thing as hitting down all ten in regular tenpin bowling. If you hit down all but one pin, you will receive a strike on the scoreboard, the pin will be swept, and it will be the next bowlers turn with a fresh rack of pins. When it comes to scoring, it doesn’t matter whether you hit 9 or 10 pins down.
If there are any more than one pin standing after the first throw, you have to hit the spare as normal. For example, if you miss the headpin on your first shot and happen to leave the 1, 2, and 4 pins, you must hit down all three on the next throw in order to receive the spare.
Given that spares count the same as with regular scoring, they are incredibly important. Leaving open frames is the easiest way to ruin an otherwise good game. Don’t forget, a game with all closed frames is usually right around 200.
