Store the Ball Properly

Did you know that a bowling ball is affected by hot and cold temperatures? It’s true! The ball may contract and expand when exposed to extreme weather conditions. Make sure you don’t leave it on your porch, in your trunk, or in any other place that may get too hot or too cold.

Clean the Ball After Use

Naturally, your bowling ball may get dirt or grit on it after using it for a long period of time. Make sure to spray a special cleaner and wipe off your bowling ball to ensure maximum use. By cleaning your bowling ball, you will increase the longevity of the ball and you’ll see a difference in your bowling game.

Hire a Professional

If you’ve bought your own bowling ball, it’s likely you paid a solid amount of money to ensure you get the best bowling ball around. To honor your purchase, you may want to seek out a professional shop that specializes in resurfacing your bowling ball. After roughly 80 games, your ball may have nicks, blemishes, and scratches, but we can restore it to mint condition.
