Bowling: Cases of sore fingers and how to fix them (part 1)

Sore fingers, calluses, swelling and even bleeding are what most bowlers have experienced. Sadly, many bowlers don’t know what’s going on and don’t know how to fix them. You must read the following article if you want to get rid of this pain.

1: Tip of fingertips near nail with calluses and burning


The distance between the 2 finger holes and the thumb hole is so far that the right finger reaches and sticks to the edge of the hole. This prevents the two fingers from reaching the finger hole deep enough (only licking the edge of the hole a bit). Every time you play the ball, try to stick your fingertips to the edge of the finger and cause irritation and calluses.
The finger hole is drilled with a diameter too small, so the finger cannot fit deep into the hole. The drill angle of the finger facing out or facing too much makes the bowler cling to the finger hole inconsistently and uncomfortably.

How to fix:

Cover the ball, measure the distance between 2 finger holes and thumb to fit the hand. The distance is just when inserting 3 fingers into the hole, you feel comfortable, the ball falls completely in the palm of the hand, and we can fit a pencil through the distance between the palm and the ball surface. Note, the pencil fits rather than inserted, but loosely. If loose means the distance between the palm and the surface of the ball is too wide, in other words the thumb finger distance is too short. Another point to note is that the distance between thumb and finger fit will make the bowler insert the thumb into the hole straightly, without having to shrink the thumb. If the gap of 3 holes has fit and the finger hole is too tight, we will drill the finger hole wide enough to fit the finger in.

2: Bruised nail


The finger hole is drilled with a diameter too small, so the finger cannot fit deep into the hole. Or the finger hole is not small, but the bowler sticks to his finger too little.

How to fix:

Drill the finger hole wide. If the finger hole is not tight, the bowler must proactively insert the finger deeper, until the 1st knuckle of the finger. In this case, there is no need to drill the finger hole wide.

How to play bowling correctly?

When modern life, there are many different sports development. Bowling is known as the entertainment sport not only for young people but also very good for the elderly.
Lane: Runway – made of shockproof materials, flat surface. On the runway there are different lines and different marks. The first is the horizontal bar that is forbidden to touch when throwing the ball, followed by 7 arrows that are divided into different distances to help players align the standard. Finally Kegel ranked from 1 to 10.

Ball: Bowling balls – made of hard materials (mostly plastic), with different weights and colors. The weight of the ball is marked by the number written on the ball. The lightest is number 6, the heaviest is number 16 (7.3 kg). The ball has 3 holes to keep the finger in.
Kegel: Batteries (or ky) – made of durable materials, of the same size and automatically stacked on the runway. Each kegel has a certain position in numbers.

Game: A game (game) has 10 turns (frame). Each turn throws the player thrown 2 times, except for the last turn. Every throw, if throwing 10 kegel from the first time is called STRIKE, and after 2 new throws, it is called SPARE. Strike and spare are added points. A runway should only be 3 people maximum.

  • Techniques swinging hands before throwing

When swinging a hand throwing ball is often based on the “pendulum” principle. From standing posture we will bring the ball forward and then with the ball and arms swinging the ball backwards. The point of swinging the ball back is from the waist and the highest is the shoulder (but the shoulder is only high for the professional, the new players should not try it), the arm swinging the ball must be straight. You should choose the right weight ball to throw for the best results.

  • Step

Do not go too fast or too slow. The first step is the shortest and the last step is the longest. The last step slipped on the floor. When stopping, just shift your focus to the heel.

  • The ball leaves forward and moves downwards – behind
  • The ball continues to move backwards – below
  • The ball moves behind – go up to the highest level of your hand
  • The ball moves down and goes forward.
