Ten Pin Bowling
While some very active sports people would believe that ten pin bowling doesn’t cause too many injuries, it does.
Let’s think about... you have a very heavy weight hanging off your fingers that you swing back and forwards before sliding in slippery shoes during your delivery. Plus,. you have to lift up that heavy ball many times during a game.
Based on this quick analysis, you are likely to experience any injuries associated with lifting eg back, neck, legs and arm. Plus your wrist and arm in under load during the arm swing and delivery. You are also required to bend and slide without falling, which can also sometimes happen.
Preventing Ten Pin Bowling Injuries
Here's are a list of ten pin bowling tips that will help your prevent injury:
- Always warm-up with a few body stretches before bowling.
- Focus on your legs, back, neck and arm.
- Make sure your shoes are clean and dry before bowling. they need to slide.
- Pick up the ball with two hands and bent knees and hips rather than your back. This’ll save your wrists and back!
- Take care not to slide your hands between bowling balls and someone else's or you might smash your fingers.
- Cradle the ball in your non-bowling arm and walk to your starting position.
- After getting your feet in place, insert your fingers (fingers first, thumb last).
- Deliver the ball and don't fall over!
