10 Pin Bowling
Visitors to the sunny Costa Blanca looking for fun things to do during their holiday are well catered for, and a favourite family activity is 10 pin bowling. An extremely popular leisure activity in the US, various forms of 10 pin bowling have been practised in other countries around the world for centuries, and the earliest evidence of the game dates back to 3200 B.C when in 1930 a British anthropologist discovered primitive pins and bowling balls in the grave of an Egyptian boy.
