Kegel (bowling)

, or , (German for "skittle", skittles) is a German bowling game played in Australia, in which a player rolls a wooden or plastic ball along a smooth, hard indoor lane (German: , bowling alley). The object of the game is to knock down the nine kegels at the other end of the lane. Kegel is based on the traditional German game of nine-pin bowling and is therefore closely related to both skittles and ten-pin bowling. It was introduced to South Australia by German settlers in the 19th century and remains popular in areas in which many German people settled, such as the Barossa Valley.
