What Is A Gutter Ball?

A gutter ball is a bowling term that refers to a bowler’s failure to knock down any pins in his or her first attempt at throwing the ball. This can happen when the bowler’s ball strays far from its intended path and ends up resting harmlessly in the gutters, or channels around the edge of the lane.

Gutter balls can be caused by several factors, including unstable footing on the lane, poor balance or bad aim. They are also common among novice bowlers who have not yet mastered the mechanics of rolling a straight shot.

The term “gutter ball” is also used to describe other types of failures in sports and other activities. For example, people who make no headway toward their goals may be said to have “gone down the gutter.”
