In most parts of the world, the game is commonly referred to simply as "bowling". In Canada and the New England region of the United States, the game is specifically called "ten-pin bowling" or "big-ball bowling" to distinguish it from sports with smaller balls such as candle-pin bowling, duck-pin bowling, and five-pin bowling. In the United Kingdom, it is formally referred to as "ten-pin bowling", as "bowling" can also refer to bowls.
