    Hello
    I have just finished a beginners coaching course and bought a set of bowls. I have read that some indoor bowls centres do not like you to use Grippo or similar products due to staining the rink. Is this correct??

    Hi if applied properly and buffed with a soft cloth ,grippo or crackajack do no harm at all,indoor rinks deposit a layer of dust to bowls,polish removes it and gives you a decent surface to hold.a polishing sleeve is a good way to polish the bowls too.The problem with polish occurs when players apply it and to not rub it in.I prefer crackajack.and have used it extensively for over 20 years

    Iíve heard many good bowlers never polish their woods. How true that is, I donít know. Iíve personally used grippo outdoors, especially when itís wet or cold, as I find your grip loosens. Some never have and never will touch grippo or related products.

    I do not play outdoors anymore but when i was i always used grip cloth, from DP. or Taylor, just keep a small piece in the your pocket very effective and. much easier than messing about with grippo..Indoors i use crackerjack to polish as required as bowls pick up carpet dust. Polishing sleeve is very useful. And i still have grip cloth in my pocket when playing.Many players who see me polishing my bowls cannot understand how polishing them allows you to grip better.
