BALL CARE

Bowling balls come in different materials like reactive resin, urethane, and plastic, designed for grip, hook, and consistency. Neglecting maintenance can lead to issues like an uneven surface, contamination, and unpredictable results on the lanes. Care for your ball to ensure long-lasting, top-notch performance.

HOW TO KNOW WHEN TO CLEAN YOUR BALL

Steve Kloempken explains how to keep your bowling ball clean.

KEY STEPS TO CONSIDER

  • Wipe after Each Shot: Use a shammy to wipe off any oil or dirt after each shot. This prevents contaminants from penetrating the ball's surface.
  • Deep Cleaning: Periodically, you should perform a deep clean using a dedicated bowling ball cleaner. This removes deep-seated oil and grime from the ball's pores.
  • Resurfacing: Depending on usage, you may need to resurface your ball. Professional pro shops can help you with this process, ensuring that your ball's surface is as good as new.
