What is no-tap in bowling?


No-tap is a type of game where a player gets credited with a strike if they knock down 9 pins on the first ball. The term ‘tap’ in bowling means the bowler threw a good ball on the first ball but left one pin standing. It doesn’t make any difference, in no-tap, whether the first ball was a good one or not. As long as at least nine pins are knocked down, the bowler is credited with a strike.
