Frequently Asked Questions

It’s all about picking a ball that suits you. The weight should be 10% of your body weight. Entry-level balls are designed to provide a minimal hook, which is much easier for beginners. Lastly, beginning bowlers can benefit from a symmetrical core. This will help you hook the ball smoothly.

The rule of ‘thumb’ when fitting a beginner’s bowling ball is that the thumbhole shouldn’t feel loose, but it also doesn’t need to be so tight that your thumb might get stuck. It should be just tight enough that you can let go of the ball without gripping it too much. As for your fingers, they should go into the holes so that you can still see your joints cleanly.

As a new player, having one bowling ball should be enough (at least for the meantime.) But if you want more, you’re sure to find ‘spares’ here at Bowlers Paradise. You can even have them engraved and drilled to your liking!
