Canadian Five-Pin bowling is a bowling variant of Ten Pin Bowling, which is mainly played in Canada, where it was developed. A competitive bowling game played between two players or two teams of two players.

Most popularly played in Canada, where many bowling alleys offer it, either alone or in combination with ten-pin bowling.

An indoor game normally played in commercial mechanical bowling alleys. There is no reason why it cannot be played in an ordinary skittle alley.

Developed as a less strenuous form of bowling it quite naturally has a wider age range of players than ten pin bowling. Competitions are held as men's singles, women's singles, men's teams, women's teams, and mixed teams, in junior, senior and 55+.

Canadian five pin uses much lighter pins than those used in Ten Pin Bowling, about 75% of the size, and uses hand-sized hard rubber balls. Making it a game far more suited to those of lesser arm strength or finger grip.

Canadian five pin games are made up of ten frames, each bowler, bowls three balls per frame. The five pins are arranged in a V formation. The centre pin is worth five points, if knocked down, those either side, three each, and the outermost pins, two each, giving each bowler a possible total of forty five points per frame. A games perfect score is therefor four hundred and fifty points.

As with other bowling games, Canadian five pin bowling is a very social game played in a very casual atmosphere, very suitable for families or mixed age groups.
