Bowling first began in Germany in the 3rd and 4th centuries, a sport called “Jiuzhu opera”, which is considered to be the predecessor of modern bowling. “Nine pillar opera” was a popular elegant game among European nobles at that time. However, it was first regarded as one of the activities of church religious rituals. People put nine pillars in the corridor of the church to symbolize traitors and evil, and then hit them with a ball, which is called hitting the “devil”. They become wooden pillars that can eliminate disasters and atone for themselves. If they fail, they should believe in God more piously.
With the popularity and development of bowling, people feel that it is not so much a religious ceremony as a pleasant game. Bowling is entertaining, interesting, challenging and skilled. It gives people exercise of body and will. Because it is an indoor activity, it is not affected by time, climate and other external conditions, nor limited by age. It is easy to learn and play. It has become a special sport suitable for men, women, young and old. Therefore, bowling has gradually evolved into a popular sports project among German people in the early 14th century.
