First Response: To play tenpin bowling, at minimum you need: a bowling ball, a pair of socks, and a pair of bowling shoes. Bowling Ball - this is used to roll down the lane and knock the pins down. It varies in weight usually between six and sixteen pounds. You should use the heaviest one you can easily swing and control. A young-adult to adult male should be using a sixteen pound ball. If you do not own one, the bowling alley usually has several to choose from that you can borrow (usually for free). Pair of Bowling Shoes - this is a special type of shoe that is slick on the bottom. It allows the bowler to slide on the approach to make delivery of the ball the most effective. Years ago, many bowling alleys would allow bowlers to bowl in just their socks. This is no longer the case due to injury/lawsuits and insurance reasons for the establishment. If you do not own a pair, you may them from the lanes for a nominal fee. Pair of Socks - trust me when I say that you do not want to be sticking your bare feet into bowling shoes that have been worn by other people. There are many other accessories that can be purchased for the advanced user to aid them in their quest of the perfect game, however these are the basics to be getting on with.

The price to go bowling in New York will vary depending on the center, the day, the time, if any discounts, such as being a senior, apply and if you need to rent bowling shoes.
