Hammer Ask an Expert FAQs
Question: How do I properly clean my bowling ball?
Answer: Hammer recommends cleaning all performance bowling balls immediately after each
bowling session using Powerhouse Energizer Cleaner for polished surface balls, and
Powerhouse Clean n’ Dull for dull surface balls. Both should also be used with Powerhouse
Oil-Free Towels for optimum performance and removal of dirt and oil from the surface of the ball.
Question: How do I get considered for the Hammer Amateur or Regional Staff?
Answer: Hammer selects Amateur and Regional Staff Players on an annual basis in April/May based on
bowling ability, bowling accomplishments, tournament schedule, and involvement in a bowling center/pro shop,
and ability to influence sales in a specific market. The typical Hammer staffer has a 220+ league average
and bowls in 20+ tournaments per year. If you would like to be considered for a staff position, please
forward your bowling resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org for review.
Question: Can I purchase direct from Hammer?
Answer: Hammer does not sell balls, bags, or accessories direct to consumers. We recommend
that you contact your local pro shop for pricing and availability. However, there is a good
selection of Hammer apparel available for direct purchase at www.hammerstuff.com.
Question: How do I process a return for defective merchandise?
Answer: Hammer offers a one-year warranty on bowling balls and a two-year warranty on bowling bags.
If the product meets the warranty guidelines, please return the defective product to the pro shop
where it was purchased. The pro shop operator will work with his/her distributor to get a replacement.
If you have difficulty with the return, please feel free to contact Hammer at (800) 453-2158 or
