While this new rule doesn’t impact teams until next season (2020-2021). I am send this reminder now so you have ample time to address with bowlers that may be impacted next year….
No balance holes as of Aug. 1, 2020
When Aug. 1, 2020, rolls around, bowlers will not be allowed to use a ball with a balance hole and all gripping holes must be used on every delivery. With this change, there is an increase in top/bottom and side weights, and the specification allowing increases in static weights for bowling balls without balance holes has been in effect since Aug. 1, 2018, to allow a smoother transition for bowlers.
To ensure your equipment is ready for the 2020-2021 season, we encourage bowlers to update their equipment as soon as possible. See more details regarding the drilling specification changes here.
Don’t forget… let your bowlers know about the ball drilling changes for NEXT season.
