3 Tips for Bowling a Better Game

Tip #1- The first tip we are going to share with you is how to swing the ball. This way that you swing is very important in the game of bowling. You need to make sure that you keep your arm loose. Keep your grip relaxed in the ball making sure that you are not squeezing your fingers, especially the thumb. In order to get the best grip you ball needs to be fit to your hand. This is done so that the the holes are not too big causing you to squeeze your fingers and muscle the swing.

Tip #2- The next tip is to finish up close to the foul line. You should be around 6 inches from the foul line after each delivery. This will allow the ball to make contact with the lane a little further down the lane conserving energy for the pins. If you find that you are too far behind the foul line at the end of your delivery, adjust your starting point so that you are closer at the end of delivery. This will improve your game quite a bit.

Tip #3- The last tip we want to share is that bowling is a mental game. You need to always be thinking about your delivery. If you make a good shot, try to play your process in your mind so that you can do that over and over. Always think about making that perfect delivery everywhere: even off the lanes. Imagine the steps you take to get that next strike. Always be thinking about your game.

We hope that these tips help you out a little bit. Come and test your bowling skills here at the lanes!
