Bowling has a long history and can be traced back to ancient civilizations.
Modern day bowling was first played by colonists. In September 1895, the American Bowling Congress was born. Soon after major national competitions started to be held.
The Dutch brought bowling to New York City (then called New Amsterdam) in the 16th century, in the form of ninepins: arranged in a diamond shape, with one point of the diamond facing the bowler.
Around 1840, a series of laws in New York and Connecticut made ninepin bowling illegal, in an attempt to discourage illegal gambling on the games (which was rampant at the time). To circumvent those laws, proprietors added a tenth pin and rearranged the stack into a triangle. Thus did tenpin bowling begin, and it has remained one of the world's most popular sports ever since.
