    Bowling is the word everyone used here.

    However, there are very accient ball game that Hawaiian used to play. It is called Mai-ka. Here is a web page that has a reference to it.

    I'm pretty sure they call it "bowling". Bowling has been around for so long that the older names for the game like "10 pin" and "5 pin" and "Feather" were out of date by the time Hawaii was introduced to bowling.

    The Hawaiian language doesn't have a Hawaiian word for every English word and I believe "bowling" could be one of them.
