Abstract
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship of bowling grip strength and bowling skill. Data were collected on bowling grip strength before and after bowling, and pinfall for thirty male adult bowlers for six weeks. The Preston hand dynamometer was used to determine the bowling grip strength of subjects. By using the Pearson product-moment and the Spearman rand-order correlation coefficient formulas, a positive, but low correlation was determined between bowling grip strength and bowling skill. A "t" test was applied to the means of the extremes of each variable. Little difference in means showed the homogeneity of the group.
