Basic Info about Bowling Balls.
If you have ever played bowling, you should know how heavy a bowling ball is. An average adult bawling ball weighs about 14 pounds (7.26 kg).
Earlier times, bowling balls were made of Lignum Vitae, which is a dense hardwood. But, beginning of 20th century, bowling balls were produced using a hard rubber. Now let’s move on to answer our initial question.
