Candlepin bowling was developed in 1880 in Worcester, Massachusetts by a local bowling center owner, Justin White some years before both the standardization of the ten-pin sport in 1895, and the invention of duckpin bowling , said by some sources to have been invented the same year. Today the game is enjoyed in many diverse places such as California and Germany in addition to New England. As in other forms of bowling, the players roll balls down a wooden pathway (

Candlepin-closeup.jpg Candlepin Bowling pins are approximately 16 inches in height and 3 inches in diameter at the center. Candlepin bowling is a variation of bowling that is confined to the New England states of Maine Massachusetts , and New Hampshire and to the Maritime provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia . It was developed in in Worcester, Massachusetts by a local bowling alley owner, Justin White. As in other forms of bowling, the players roll balls down a wooden pathway to knock down as many pins as possible. The main differences between candlepin bowling and the predominant ten-pin bowling style are the facts that each player uses three balls per frame (see below), the balls are much smaller and do not have holes, the fallen pins ('deadwood' or simply 'wood') are not cleared away between balls during a player's turn, and the pins are thinner, and thus harder to knock down. One of the results of these differences is that scoring points is rather more difficult than in ten-pin bowling, and the highest officially sanctioned score is only 245 out of a possible 300 points. (In ten-pin bowling, virtually every bowling alley has a list of people with "perfect games," meaning they have scored 300 points.)

  • The Differences Between Candlepin Bowling and Ten Pin Bowling
    Adjust font-size: Published September 07, 2009 by: LoisRyan View Profile Follow Add to Favorites ... Bowling Ball Introduced just a few years before the standardization of ten pin bowling, candlepin bowling became popular in Canada and the New England states. Comparing candlepin bowling to ten pin bowling is like comparing baseball to cricket. While there are similarities, such as using ten pins and the same pin layout, there are many differences between the two sports.
    The candlepin bowling lane is similar to the ten pin lane in length and width. It has gutters, a foul line and a pin setter. However, the ten pin lanes are curved where it is difficult to roll the ball in a straight line. The candlepin lane has a level surface all the way across.
    While there is one foul line in ten pins, there are three in candlepins. The first is the normal foul line where the bowler cannot step on or over. The second is the lob line which is ten feet from the foul line. Since bowlers can toss the ball rather than roll it, the ball must make contact before this line. The third line is in front of the number one pin. This is the dead wood line which shows what toppled pins are legally playable.

    http://www.bowlcandlepin.com/History.htm
    Many great things have come out of Worcester Massachusetts but surely one of the greatest is Candlepin Bowling. Bowling in various forms can be traced back to the stone ages but it was in 1880 that the game of Candlepins as we know it today was developed. In 1879 Justin White purchased a billiard and bowling establishment on Pearl Street in Worcester. Shortly after his purchase he discovered some unconventional bowling pins included in the purchase, one inch wood cylinders ten inches high resembling broomsticks, three inch wide cylinders resembling candles and some balls ranging in size from three to five inches. Because these pins made the game difficult and the scores low Justin knew he must make some changes or his future in the bowling business would be short lived. It was in 1880 Justin would increase the size of his new pins to twelve inches high with the center being two inches tapering down to one inch on each end. Almost immediately the new game took off, with inquires coming into Pearl Street about the new game. Justin began manufacturing the new pins for other proprietors. It wasn't long before many establishments only had Candlepins and competition between members began to increase. The first published high score in 1880 was a 112 with average scores ranging in the 80's. Being the father of Candlepins wasn't enough in 1888 Justin was given the title as the first Champion Candlepin Bowler because of his record 131 game. This record didn't last long, six months later Justin bowled a 133 game.
