Weight of balls for bowling is measured in pounds. One pound is equal to 453,6 grams. The balls are marked by some numbers which mean the weight in pounds (as a rule, from 6 to 16).
The lightest ball (number 6) has 2,7 kilograms in weight. The heaviest ball (number 16) has 7,3 kilograms in weight. As for me, I like to use balls with number 6 despite they are for children. Balls with the same weight have the same colours and I can easy find a necessary one.
A game consists of 10 frames. Each player can throw a ball twice in each frame. If a player knocks down all of pins by the first attempt, this throw will be called "strike". If a player does it by two attempts, it will be called "spare". I wish I never had the "strike"! However, I often knock down all of pins by two attempts.
