Ninepin Bowling Classification
Like all IBSA sports, athletes who want to compete in ninepin bowling need to be classified by experts to ensure they have an eligible impairment.
Those who do will be placed into one of three groups: B1, B2 or B3.
B1 and B2 athletes have the most severe impairments but in showdown, all athletes wear eyeshades and so all players can compete against each other.
