Better Bowling for
30 Years of continual
development and refinement
The 2022 BOLA Bowling Machine has a new ePaper high resolution Control Panel allowing many new user-definable options. The new display will show speeds in kph or mph, a session ball count, a session timer, and features a user selectable random increment function for competitive practice sessions. The 2022 BOLA Professional also features brushless motors which drive concave profile moulded urethane ball delivery wheels.
BOLA Manufacturing has relocated to new, purpose built premises five minutes’ drive from M5 junction 16. Besides giving us more space, this makes dropping off and collecting Bowling Machines far simpler. Customers are welcome to visit and test our machine range before ordering. Next autumn we will be opening a second building which will include state-of-the-art indoor cricket training/coaching facilities.
The new TrueMan by BOLA displays a high-contrast LED animation of a bowler in front of the Bowling Machine. The animated 'bowler' runs in to deliver the ball and his action synchronises exactly with release of the ball. Coaches and players can create their own bespoke database of deliveries, overs or bowling spells from a library of animations. Bowler animations give players the natural cues they need to release all their normal batting triggers.
