Bowling is a sport or leisure activity in which a player rolls or throws
a bowling ball towards a target. It is one of the major forms of
throwing sports. Bowling in the United States and Canada most
frequently refers to ten-pin bowling. In the United Kingdom and other
Commonwealth countries it more often refers to lawn bowls.
Why do bowlers have to wear bowling shoes?
Every bowling alley requires bowlers to wear bowling shoes, and it's not
just so they can get another couple dollars out of you. It is important
to keep the approach on the bowling alley clean of debris. This is
the part of the lane that you walk on, leading up to the foul line,
prior to releasing your ball. Being sure that the shoes are only
worn inside helps. For maximum performance, the approach needs to
be flat, moderately slick and free of debris.
Not all bowling shoes are created equal:
What You Should Know Before You Buy Bowling Shoes One bowling shoe is
for sliding, and the other is for braking. It's because of this, that
bowling shoes are designed specifically for right-handed or left-handed
bowlers. The shoe for sliding is the one opposite of the hand with which
you bowl. For example, a right-handed bowler will have the left shoe as
the sliding shoe. What You Should Know Before You Buy
Bowling Shoes Bowling shoes with padded linings and collars and
cushioned insoles will provide extra comfort. They can also provide
extra support and stability by minimizing the movement of your foot
within the shoe.
What is a bowling shirt?
You want to wear a shirt that allow easy movement of your arms.
Some bowling shirts are embroidered or printed for bowling leagues or
teams with a logo, name or design. It is bowling night, so gear up
with your trusty ball and your lucky bowling shirt. Find old school
designs in crazy patterns to strike out the competition, or try for a
more sophisticated option such as a solid black or blue, sure to go with
