When you go out bowling, you have probably noticed that each lane has 10 pins, 2 gutters, and is 60 feet in length. What you may have never noticed is the surface the ball rolls on can be different from bowling center to bowling center.

Football and soccer use to predominantly be played on natural grass, but as of late most fields are made up of turf. Anyone that has played on both surfaces knows that they do not play the same and require different preparation. It’s similar in bowling. The playing conditions vary.

Our coaches will explain the difference between the two most common lane surfaces (wood and synthetic) and how this affects your game and what you need to do to prepare for each surface.
