    Hello everybody!

    I am trying to translate this bowling term into French.

    As explained in another thread, "a gutterball is when the ball ends up right in the gutter without hitting any pins."

    I have found the term "pneu" on one website, but I would like a confirmation from the bowling players of this community (one website only makes me doubt) !

    Thank you!

    Une boule dans le dalot is what they say in Canada--not sure if that translates the same way into European French.

    En France on parle plus couramment des "gouttières".

    Thank you both.

    "Dalot" au Canada, "gouttière" en France...and I have found yet another website where they use "rigole" ! Where could they be from ?! :D

    It does not really answer my question, but we are moving forward...
