Bowling is one of the fastest growing Special Olympics sports. Although there are some modifications made for athletes with physical disabilities, most athletes compete under the same rules and circumstances as athletes on a professional tour.  In addition to offering traditional singles, athletes can participate in Unified Sports® doubles. Unified Sports® is a program that assigns Special Olympics athletes and partners without intellectual disabilities to the same teams for training and competition.
