Choosing Your Bowling Ball
If you are visiting the Wave Bowl socially, then your best option is to use one of our house bowling balls.
House balls come in a variety of sizes and fingers.
The heaviest bowling ball weighs 16 pounds and the lightest bowling ball is 6 pounds.
So how will you know which weight is best for you?
Your ideal ball weight is the heaviest ball you can comfortably throw. If you have chosen a ball and find you are getting sore or tired, then you’ll need a lighter ball.
If you are throwing a 12 pound bowling ball with extreme ease, then you will probably need at heavier ball.
Rule of Thumb
Most men use 14- to 16-pound bowling balls, while women tend to do well with 10- to 14-pound balls. If you’re taking the kids along, assign one pound for each year of age, such as a 6-pound ball for a six-year-old, but you’ll also want to take gender and physical condition into account.
Ok, so there you have it ! A quick run-down of the game of bowling.
Feel free to ask our team once your in Wave Bowl for more information and help picking out your ball!
