900 Series (Bowling)

900 series in bowling is when an individual or bowler bowls three (3) consecutive perfect games.  The maximum score one can get in a single game is 300 which consists of 12 strikes in a row from start to finish.  (10 frames multiplied by 30 pins per frame equals 300).  To learn more about how scoring in bowling works, click here.

To bowl a perfect 900 Series, a bowler will need to throw 36 total strikes in a row.  In a typical league league format, you will bowl 3 games.  When you factor in the lane conditions, the amount of bowlers bowling on the pair of lanes, bowling styles, and a list of other factors such as weather, humidity, etc., you can imagine this is not an easy tasks.  Only a hand few of bowlers in the world has actually done this with credible witnesses.
