I am going bowling very soon, I started a league last Thursday and I did alright but I didn’t do well.I also got quite a few gutter balls and I felt like a fool. I am afraid I will do worse tonight or I will get a lot of gutter balls. How can I avoid gutter balls, how can I also get strikes? If there is a way
Don't be scared about performing poorly! You're not bowling to look like an all-star, you should be doing it because it's fun. I've done it too from time to time, I'm awful at it :P. All I know is that you should keep your arm straight and in line with your wrist, then flick when releasing the ball. It's not much advice, like I said I'm not any good. Don't feel like a fool, nobody really cares to judge. Everyone is there to have a good time, if you look like you're also having a good time then everyone will smile with you. As long as you have fun doing it, you'll get good at it.You may skip over this and just say that you want tips on getting better at bowling, that's alright. I'm just making sure you understand that your enjoyment comes first. This goes for all sports! Technique, mastery, finesse, all that comes with time and patience. But what's there from day one should be the passion ^_^.
