Bowling Time

A Mii in a proper stance, about to roll a bowling ball.

Bowling balls are used to knock down pins in bowling, in Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort.

In Wii Sports Resort, the weight of the ball cannot be affected, but in real-life bowling, players play bowling with balls of varying weights, which usually range from six to sixteen pounds. The color of the ball can be changed by holding down one of the four buttons on the Wii Remote's D-Pad, with each corresponding to blue (the default color), pink (default for player 2), green (default for player 3) and yellow (default for player 4) before the game is started, right after the player confirms their Mii.

Besides for the aforementioned color changes, bowling balls do not change throughout the game.
