What if I Bowl Out of Turn?


Question: What if I Bowl Out of Turn?
Answer: Just like bowling on the wrong lane, bowling out of turn can come about for a number of reasons. Regardless, there is no penalty.

If you're the third bowler on your team and accidentally throw a ball when it's the second bowler's turn, that score is erased, the pins are respotted, and the correct bowler takes his turn.
