Canadian Inventions: Five-Pin Bowling Print

Manmade Art

Five-pin bowling was invented in Canada by Thomas F. Ryan in 1909 at his Toronto Bowling Club. Many of his patrons thought the ten-pin game was too physically demanding. So he cut five ten-pins down to about 3/4 size, introduced a hand-sized hard rubber ball and developed a new scoring system for his game. To this day five-pin bowling remains a game exclusively played by Canadians.
