Whether you are new to the game or a seasoned vet, the bowling pro shop can be a confusing place from time to time. Scott Pohl, owner of On Track Pro Shop explains if you’re new to the area or haven’t been to a pro shop near you before, simply stop in and introduce yourself.

Making the Introduction

Talk bowling. Most pro shop operators enjoy meeting new people, even if you don’t make a purchase. Explain where you’re at currently with your game and how you got started in the sport.

What’s Next

Now that you’re on your way, ask your pro shop operator for a lesson. Having the bowling pro shop operator watch you and give you advice will lead to improving your game while equipping you with necessary purchases.


Getting your grip checked regularly is one of the most important things you can work on at your pro shop. Bowling coaches across the globe agree you can’t coach a bad fit. Bowling fundamentals in your game can be off just because your fit is incorrect. You can avoid going backward in your game just by stopping into the pro shop and having your fit checked regularly.


From basic to advanced, your pro shop will have everything you’re looking for. When you begin to notice the approach behaving in a way you didn’t anticipate, maybe sticky or slippery, there are hi-performance shoes you can purchase to combat these issues.

Bowling Balls and Accessories

The pro shop works with manufacturers to distribute bowling balls. From the newest releases to plastic spare balls, your pro shop will have what you need. If you’re looking for a bowling ball that hasn’t been released yet, stop in and talk with your pro shop operator about it. It’s always good to get an expert opinion who knows your game to help better inform you about that bowling ball and how it will work with the balls you already have.

It’s always good to have a bowling ball cleaner in your bag along with tape. Make sure you have a dry towel along with paper towels to use before, during and after bowling. Learn more about bowling pro shops with “Bowling Pro Shop: Proper Tools” and “Getting Fitted at the Bowling Pro Shop.”
