Are you a Cranker, a Stroller or a Tweener

Anybody who knows just a little bit about bowling or hangs around in bowling alleys will know that there are three main types of bowler – there’s the cranker, the stroller and the tweener. Of course there are other variations too, the two handers, the power strokers and the spinners but the main bowling styles are cranking, strolling and tweening.

If you know which type of bowler you are you’ll be better able to improve your game – it will also help you to make better judgments when you buy your bowling kit from or some other bowling store. You mustn’t try to be any of these categories; you’ve got to go with the flow of what comes naturally to you. All bowlers have a slightly different style so whatever you are you will be something unique!
Crankers – are the power bowlers, the ones who blast the pins to smithereens with the sheer power and high number of revolutions. They often have a high backed swing and really open their shoulders preceding the delivery thus generating tons of power. Some crankers do have a relatively low back swing with a cupped wrist creating all those revolutions.

Crankers have the power but this style of bowling isn’t always as accurate as they would like and splits are a constant threat. Crankers are much more prone to throwing splits than other types of bowler.
Strollers – are the smooth operators of the bowling lane, relying on accuracy more than sheer power – lots of the professionals could be regarded as strollers. The swing of a stroller is usually parallel with the ground and the ball does have less revolutions than that of the cranker – in stroking consistency is the key over power.

Strollers may have accuracy but their slower delivery doesn’t always have enough oomph to plow across the pins like the cranker does.
Tweeners – are something in between, a kind of hybrid between the cranker and the stroller. Bowlers may be labeled as tweeners because their style doesn’t really fit into cranker or stroller – he may execute a back swing which is pretty high but not high enough to be a cranker, in fact some tweeners have many cranker qualities without the necessary strength of the wrist to really execute the necessary power. If a bowler isn’t a cranker and isn’t a stroller he must be a tweener.
Tweeners are overall the most versatile types of bowler you’ll come across with the skill to adapt their game for the power shots when necessary and the accuracy of a stroller. They bowl the ball at an average speed with a smooth delivery and a back swing which isn’t high and isn’t low, it’s somewhere in the middle.

So what type of bowler are you?
  • Do you have a high back swing and really try to power the ball to explode the pins with loads of revolutions – if so you’re a cranker (and you probably suffer from quite a few splits).
  • Do you rely more on the accuracy of your bowling rather than power – sending the ball with a low, parallel back swing and an accurate aim at the pins – if so you’re a definite stroller.
  • Does your bowling style lay firmly between the two – because if it does then you’re a tweener. It’s no good fighting it, you are what you are . . .

Whatever type of bowler you are you’ll find a great selection of gear and equipment at – why not take a look and see what they’ve got to suit your style.

Extremely Creative and Fun Ideas For an Exciting Kids' Bowling Party

Bowling birthday parties are always a hit with the kids for a number of good reasons. Few public places are more fun for a kid’s birthday party than the local bowling alley. Unlike a restaurant-only venue, the entertainment is already built in to the bowling party with a game the kids love to play. Guards can often be set up to prevent gutter balls and to keep the fun continuous. After all, it isn’t tournament league play and the kids don’t care if they are using custom columbia bowling balls or Big Bird brand. It’s just about the fun. Plus, with onsite food available, there is little left for the adults to do except have fun with the kids and orchestrate all the action. Here are a few tips for doing just that.

1. Pick the right bowling alley.
Some alleys are more kid friendly than others, and some are more like a bar and geared to adults. Check around and find the right alley for your party. Make a reasonable guest list. Your child’s entire class at school may be a little unwieldy in the bowling alley while the kids are trying to bowl. A better number of guests may be closer to five or ten and will make the party—and the kids—much easier to manage.

2. Plan some fun bowling games.
Bowling is already fun, but kids bore easily so it is a good idea to have some creative boredom killers primed to go. Try having the kids bowl backward. Make them do a silly or crazy walk before they release the ball. Ask them to bowl in slow motion. Get them to pretend they are walking along a tightrope as they approach the lane. Your imagination is the only limit on the fun games the kids can play while they bowl.

Just remember to have fun with the planning and a bowling-themed birthday cake is always a good idea. Party favors like milk bottles decorated to look like bowling pins (a little red striping around the neck does the trick) go well with the cake, too. You can find plenty of inspiration for your bowling birthday party at BowlingBalls.
