Nearly 500 bowlers participated in the Zombie Singles No-Tap Tournament Saturday – hoping for a chance at the top prizes for just a $10 entry.

No-Tap is a lot of fun because it increases a bowler’s chance at a strike considerably. Rather than needing all 10 pins for a strike, one achieves the feat with only nine. Nobody gets tapped by the 10 pin (or 7 pin if you’re a lefty).

One in five entries cashed at each of the participating centers (Del Rio Lanes in Downey, Keystone Lanes in Norwalk, Forest Lanes in Lake Forest, Cal Bowl in Lakewood and Saddleback Lanes in Mission Viejo), with various optional sidepots to be won as well.

Perhaps the most fun of the contest came at the end of it though, when the 3-6-9 competition took center stage. Bowlers who prepaid for the tournament by the deadline were eligible to win $50 just for prepaying. A bonus $50 was offered to those who prepaid and competed in a costume.

Have a look at all our costumed characters from the different centers!

And now for the winners.
