How to Hit Split Conversions in Bowling

Hit One of the Pins' Outer Edge

Nintendo Switch Sports - Hit One of the Pins

If you encounter two non-adjacent bowling pins, this is known as a Split. To hit both of the pins, aim for one of the pins' outer edge so it can knock over the other pin.

Be sure not to hit one of the pins head-on as this causes it knock backwards towards the gutter, leaving you with one pin on the lane.

Hit the Middle Part to Strike 3 Pins

Nintendo Switch Sports - 3 Pins Split Conversion

If there are 3 non-adjacent pins left in the lane, aim in the middle of the two pins to hit them all and score a Split Conversion.

You can also use the Hook maneuver to curve the ball slightly towards the direction of the middle part to hit all the pins in the process.

Aim at the Corner of the Lane to Strike 4 Pins

There are rare occasions where you will encounter three pins on the right side and one pin on the left side of the lane. Aim at the corner of the lane that has the three pins and throw the bowling ball in a straight line.

Depending on the speed of the ball, you can hit all four pins if one of them slides towards the opposite lane and hits the other pin in the process.

Use the Zoom Feature
