Better Bowling for
30 Years of continual
development and refinement
The BOLA Bowling Machine has been at the forefront of technology since its conception in 1984. The Machine's ability to provide consistent and accurate bowling of all styles has improved the ability of batsmen of all standards and abilities. The BOLA is used by Test and First Class cricketers as well as club and school players throughout the World.
The BOLA Ball Trainer was specifically designed to provide youngsters with the accurate and consistent ball delivery needed for developing the catching, fielding or batting / hitting skills that are integral to many sports. The 'Merlyn by BOLA' Spin Bowling Machine is a state-of-the-art machine that delivers programmable, spinning balls, of every imaginable variety.
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.
