How to find proper bowling equipment to improve your game?

Bowling is a fun game. It was at the height of its popularity many years ago. In some areas of the country it is still as popular as ever. There are some high schools that have bowling as a class. Once a week the class goes to the local bowling alley, what great fun that must be!In order to be a good bowler, you need great hand-to-eye coordination. Good eye sight helps too! You also need bowling equipment that fits you properly. There are basic items that you need to have in order to bowl. Then there are specialty bowling equipment items that will help you become a better bowler.Since you cannot bowl in your street shoes, you need to have a good pair of bowling shoes. You can rent them at the bowling alley, or you can buy your own. If you are a serious bowler, you should buy your own shoes. Most people feel more comfortable wearing their own bowling shoes.Of course you need a proper fitting bowling ball. Again, you can use one of the bowling balls available at the alley, or you can buy one, which is far better for your game. The sales people at the pro shop will help you determine what weight bowling ball you need. They will help fit the ball to you and determine where the three holes need to be drilled.Now that you have the shoes and the ball, you need something to carry them in. A bowling ball bag is a specialty bag that holds the bowling ball and your bowling shoes. There is also room in the bag for a small rag and a hand towel. You need the rag to wipe off the bowling ball periodically during the games. You need the hand towel to wipe your hand, especially if they get damp.Other bowling equipment that may help you improve your game would be a glove. You only need on, one the hand you use to throw the ball. The glove is meant to help you keep your thumb in the up position as you prepare to release the ball.Use the right bowling equipment and enjoy the game

How does wrist strengtheners wrist supports and gloves help you play bowling?

While one might not think of it, the wrist plays a very important role in how comfortable the grip of the bowling ball feels. When you grip anything the muscles in the wrist work to help. After bowling two or three games in a league or open bowling, and placing your fingers in the bowling ball and gripping it 30-50 times, the wrist can become tired and fatigued. A strong wrist and/or supports/gloves can help the wrist withstand the wear and tear gripping a bowling ball does to it, along with making the bowler feel more comfortable while bowling. Click on the 'Bowling Wrist Support' link below to read an article about supports and see links to other articles concerning bowling.

How do you know which bowling ball is right for you?

You can tell if the Bowling ball is right for you by first checking the weight. each person has a different weight they can handle without injuring themselves so first find a bowling ball that is light enough for you to carry and throw down the lane, and does not strain the arm. Also checking the hole on the ball to see if its easy to slide off your fingers. having to small of a hole can cause the ball to stick as your fingers gets bigger as your body heats up. so it is wise to find a ball that you can grip and can slide off easily, weight will also help so you can play longer without getting tired

Inertia deals with an objects reluctance to change its velocity. So if its not moving, you will have to exert a large force to get it to move.

If you throw a bowling ball through a grass field, it will go father than a beach ball thrown in a similar manner, because the bowling ball has more inertia!!

Why dont bowling alleys have windows?

It honestly depends where you go to bowl. I know some bowling alleys that do have windows and others that don't. You might not find a window directly next to a lane for obvious reasons, it would get expensive having to replace windows all the time if a ball hits them. Also lots of bowling alleys offer cosmic bowling with black lights and disco balls. If it was a bright day outside then there would be too much lighting for cosmic bowling. If you have any other bowling questions please let me know. I will be happy to help!

What is the relationship between virtual bowling and real bowling?

Bowling games on the computer dont help you at all in real life, but if your playing on the Wii it can help you to improve.Last statement is up to debate so I wont delete it.When you bowl in real life, there are a lot more factors that are taken into consideration such as the surface friction of the bowling ball, the weight, the cover stock, the friction on the lane or oil pattern, your ball speed, your desired path vs the one you ACTUALLY hit, and most importantly pin carry. Virtual bowling will probably never reach a level of being realistic for the sheer fact that the angle that your ball hits the pocket, with a specific amount of kinetic energy, affects the way the pins fall, and ultimately determines which ones are still standing. Another key difference is that the physical approach is completely different from person to person and is a huge factor in how well you score.Its actually very hard to understand all this unless you have a coach and/or you dedicate your life to it or you are a physicist that studies bowling.Feel free to google all those terms.
