List Of Best Bowling Places In Nairobi

Are you wondering where you can find some of the best bowling places in Nairobi? Well, worry no more as we got you covered with a list of the best bowling spots and their charges.

Before we dive deep into the listing part, let’s first look at what’s bowling and how it’s played. Bowling is categorized as a recreation game involving a unique ball, rolling lane, and pins.

Pins are normally 10 placed at the end of the shiny wooden lane, then all you have to do is to roll the ball through the lane with an aim of knocking pins which are recorded as score. If you knock all the 10 pins at once you score a ‘strike’ if you knock 9 then you’ll score a “spare.” With that brief knowledge of bowling, we can now proceed with listing.
