Different Equipment Used in Bowling

May 10, 2008
Bowling is one of the most popular sports in the world. In bowling, players attempt to score the most points by rolling a ball along a flat surface in order to knock down objects called pins. There are several types of bowling games, but the official, and most popular, bowling game is ten-pin bowling.

Like most other popular leisure sports like golf or tennis, bowling also needs several equipment in order for you to play it properly. The equipment are usually inexpensive and should be affordable by normal or casual players, but the serious and hardcore ones usually spend a large amount of money getting the best and the newest ones. For the casual players, though, all equipment can be rented at the bowling center.

Bowling equipment differs for bowling players and bowling center operators. Bowling players have the following equipment:

Player equipments

Bowling bags - Carries and protects one or more bowling balls.

Bowling accessories - Non-slip grip cream, grip sacks, bowling ball maintenance tools, hand and wrist grip supports, towels, gloves, bowling ball cleaning equipment and supplies

Bowling shoes - these are not your normal rubber or sport shoes. Bowling shoes have smooth soles and are usually very narrow.

Bowling clothes - Bowling games usually take place in air-conditioned bowling centers. Casual attire can be worn.

Compared to bowling players, bowling center operators have different bowling equipment. Their most important concern in a bowling center is the bowling alleys. A bowling alley has different parts and equipment that require operation and maintenance.

Bowling centers have the following equipments:

Bowling lane - this is where you roll the ball to hit the pins. Bowling lanes are made of long wooden boards joined together to form a lane that is 70 feet long and 3.5 feet wide. The lane is smooth and is kept smooth by daily cleaning and maintenance.

Bowling machine - the bowling machine places and arranges the pins you knock down during each round.

Bowling ball retriever - The retriever's job is to get the ball that is thrown by the player and deliver it back to them at the end of the alley, via tunnels.

Players' area - At the end of the tunnel is a ball-sorting mechanism. A hand blow dryer may also be installed at the bowling ball sorter. A computer and display monitors show players the game points. The players would have seats and a table. A rack with extra bowling balls would usually be placed beside the seats.
