Basic Bowling Tips for Beginners

Bowling is a favorite sport for many people in the United States. In fact, there are approximately 50 million Americans who play bowling. Bowling is also one of the most popular sports in the world. Almost anyone can play this sport, and you can also do it anytime since bowling is not weather dependent. Plus, it’s a cheaper sport than most others. Among the best things about bowling is the friendship that develops among teammates and even opponents. Bowling is a good way to meet people and make new friends. Here are some tips to help you improve and enjoy your game more.
Choose the right ball to use

Not all bowling balls are the same. Most bowlers carry at least 3 various kinds of bowling balls, no hook, medium hook and high hook potential balls. It is important to know that if you are using a potentially high hooking ball, the ball will never hook on its own. You will have to make it hook. This is why before investing in different types of balls; you need to learn how to make a proper and consistent ‘release’.

Starting spot

You need to throw your strike shoot or first ball of each frame from the same starting point. This increases your chances of getting strikes.


Every time you step your foot, you should match it with a specific arm swing release.  Getting the right timing is key to a good shot.

Hand and wrist

Always keep your hand and wrist firm and strong through the entire shot.
Curt Ellerbee is a great bowler. He says, “the key to being a good bowler is to love the game.”
