Everyone can master the skills to bowling like a pro. You can improve your score by using a number of different tips and methods that are available. Bowling is a great family activity because it is a game enjoyed by all ages. The whole purpose is to have fun but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to improve your game by using various methods. A better score will only mean that you will find bowling even more enjoyable! Having a high score at the end of the game is incredibly satisfying.
It’s important that, when you go bowling, you need to use the right ball. You don’t need to take your own ball, though, as most bowling alleys will have plenty of bowling balls available to use. Take some time to try the different balls available. You want to find a ball that is not too light and that is not too heavy. Your fingers and thumb should fit comfortably in the holes on the ball. The holes shouldn’t be either too tight or too lose, as you could reduce the control you have over the ball. You can use a little textured tape for your thumb hold if you need to improve your grip a more. When you’ve chosen a ball, lift and try it to be sure it’s the right one for you.
It’s best if you use your own footwear. Even though most places offer rental shoes, they are mainly for the casual player. If you plan on spending a lot of time at the bowling alley, though, it is a good idea to get your own bowling shoes. With your own shoes you will be guaranteed excellent arch support and perfect comfort throughout your bowling game. Painful shoes will cause you to lose focus and your game will be off. You should also consider using a wire brush to prepare the toe and heel of each shoe. Your shoes will have better traction and you won’t slide around as much.
Even if you don’t knock over all the pins on the first try, you can use your second try to aim at the ones you didn’t get first time. When you’re aiming at knocking down the spare pins, try aiming your body away from the pins just a little bit. Wherever your pins are, try aiming some arrows to either the left or right of them. This is great for players who might unintentionally curve their throws. If you know you can throw the ball straight where you want it to go, then try standing opposite the center arrow by a couple of inches as you aim at the remaining pins. By standing on the opposite side of the center line, you can avoid your ball rolling into the gutter.
