One: Bowling is an indoor sport, and the investment cost is high. A Brunswick or AMF fairway equipment is about 10w. AMF has been discontinued, and maintenance and post-maintenance are troublesome. Add in other costs, and opening a standard 10-lane bowling alley is a lot of money.
Two: The venue selection is more demanding. The first is indoor, and the interval between indoor load-bearing columns is also required to be 4m/7m/11m. The floor height is required to be 5 meters (because the bowling ball needs to set up the floor dragon skeleton, and the ceiling also needs lighting equipment). Secondly, the total length of the bowling lane needs to be 32 meters. If the indoor length, width and height are not suitable, it is not convenient to install the bowling lane and other equipment.
Three: Since bowling alleys require a relatively high amount of capital to open and maintain (air conditioning and fairways consume a lot of electricity), the fees are also relatively high. Usually, after a round of balls, the general charge in the country is between 15-25 (except for certain activity periods), and a round of balls is fully played in about 7-10 minutes. The consumer groups are mainly for people with certain spending power.
4: In the past, many public institutions and state-owned enterprises in China set up bowling alleys in their own companies, or organized employees to play. However, at present, the efficiency of state-owned enterprises and central enterprises is generally poor. Therefore, whether it is internal employee consumption or external organization of competitions or consumption, it is not as good as before. , and even disappeared.
Five: Although bowling is a sport with no threshold for age and gender, it is suitable for all ages, but it is more difficult to play well or to show interest. Here we will explain it in two dimensions.
1: There are very few bowling events, and there are almost no domestic broadcasts of foreign pba games, which results in a lack of breadth and depth of bowling publicity.
2: Bowling training is very boring, and basic skills training is even more boring. It is good for ordinary people to score around 100 points in a round, but in real training, it is not passable without 180+. , bottle splitting, shot time control, pace training, rhythm training and a series of exercises that seem very boring.
Six: Bowling is divided into three types of play, straight line/arc line/flying saucer. Usually, trainers must go through straight-line ball training to a certain stage before they can choose to play arc or UFO. In particular, the curve ball (more popular abroad) has more stringent requirements for power control, shot timing, landing point control, impact point and fairway oil type.
