BACK Bowling is a recreational sport that is enjoyed by many. Wheelchair bowling contains similar techniques. With several different adaptive devices such as ramps and bowling sticks, those with very limited mobility can still partake in the sport.
When bowling from a wheelchair, pin-crushing power is not as important as a good rolling ball. Since you won’t be able to swing the ball high behind your body, you’ll need to swing it back in a straight pendulum motion, and let the weight of the ball do the work. Keep your head still, and your weight on the opposite side of your chair. Follow through … nice and easy.
To explain the finer points of the game and introduce the available adaptive equipment, the American Wheelchair Bowling Association (AWBA) has produced a book and a video, the 30-minute “Wheelchair Bowling.” Formed in 1962, the association has 500 members nationwide. All members receive The 11th Frame, a bi-monthly newsletter listing tournament results and upcoming events.
