Best Answer

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.

Depending on the weight of the ball, it puts a lot of strain on your joints, tendons and ligaments.
