The 18th Asian Games Jakarta Palembang 2018, an pan-Asian multi-sport event, will held from 18 August to 2 September 2018 in Indonesia. The bowling competition was held August 18-27 in the bowling center (right) inside Jakabaring Sport City also known as Jakabaring Sport Complex an integrated sports facility complex near Palembang, featuring 167 bowlers – 99 men and 68 women – from 18 countries.
Also for the first time in Asian Games history, the World Bowling Scoring System will be used and Jakabaring Bowling Center has been modified to display and tabulate the new scoring system throughout the tenpin bowling competition.
The World Bowling Scoring System maintains the traditional 10-frame format but awards 30 pins for a strike, 10 pins for a spare plus the pinfall of the first shot in the frame, and actual pinfall after two shots in case of an open frame. The maximum score is still 300 and this figure is based on the player receiving 10 consecutive strikes with no bonus pins being awarded in the 10th frame.
