Skittle Balls

Skittle Balls

Serious skittlers have for centuries, preferred to use balls made from the traditional wood, Lignum Vitae, a tropical hardwood which is extremely hard, very heavy and also self-lubricating. But this tropical hardwood is increasingly difficult to obtain and many leagues are having to try new materials for their skittle balls.

Some leagues prefer hard rubber which takes longer to wear out the pins and is more environmentally friendly. The rubber balls we sell are pink to reduce marking of the alley.

As an alternative to Lignum, we have balls made from a black phenol resin composite. These are similar to the material used to make modern lawn bowls - the weight and density are deliberately similar to Lignum Vitae. They have been used by serious pubs and league players successfully for years.

If you aren't sure what size ball you need, please see our skittle ball size guide.
