No Reason to Quit BowlingPosted January 31st, 2011
Bowling is a sport that is pursued by many who have experienced vision loss. The repetitive nature of the activity makes it possible for a person with very little vision to compete effectively. Only one additional piece of equipment is needed: a guide rail set up along the edge of the lane. No bumpers in the gutters or other concessions are necessary.
Some bowlers use the guide rail only to position themselves in the lane; others maintain contact with the guide rail throughout the bowling motion. Guide rails are portable—usually weighted down with bowling balls on either end. They collapse for easy storage.
