Special Olympics Bowling is "rolling in" popularity because of its leisurely nature and competitive spirit. Although there are some modifications made for athletes with physical disabilities, most athletes compete using the same rules as athletes on a professional tour.

Bowlers are grouped in divisions according to the athletes’ ability level. Special Olympics athletes can choose from a variety of events, including singles, doubles or team. Physically disabled athletes can participate in ramp bowling.
