Guide to Skittle Ball Sizes

The following shows the size of LV ball typically used by leagues and clubs for the various pins sizes. The larger and heavier the ball, the easier it ploughs through the skittles which is rewarding, but the downside is that there will be a greater wear and tear on the pins and alley.

We have also shown our recommendations for the Composite and Rubber balls. Woods other than Lignum Vitae will be significantly lighter and therefore, you may wish to purchase a slightly larger ball than you would for LV.
