Every bowler should ideally improve their game every chance he or she gets. After all, bowling can bring financial benefits that can make life better, such as when you’re a consistent winner at league bowling tournaments at Brunswick.
And the best way to do so: Increase your bowling average that, in turn, means, knocking down more pins. Here are useful tips that will work to your advantage when you practice them consistently.
Prepare Your Equipment
Your bowling balls are your main equipment and so it makes sense to take good care of them, as if these are extensions of your hand. You have to prepare them before each game by keeping these maintenance measures in mind.
- After the game, spray them with a ball cleaner. Be sure to remove the excess oil on their surfaces, too, using a microfiber towel; the oil came from the lane.
- Take the balls into a pro shop for regular maintenance when these have been used for between 50 and 100 games. These balls should be serviced for replacement of the grips and inserts; double checking the fit; and oil extraction or resurfaced, among others.
Don’t scrimp on your bowling balls either. You want balls that suits your playing style, as well as durable enough to withstand hundreds of games.
Know the Lanes
In many cases, the lane pattern will be released prior to play so players have full use of the lane graph. You should use the lane graph since it has valuable information about the lane surface, oil volume, pattern length, and shape of the shot. You can then use the information to adjust your play, if necessary, and increase your bowling scores.
If a lane graph isn’t available, you can always scout the lanes ahead of the game. You may even play so as to determine your strengths and weaknesses on the lanes. While the lane conditions will likely change during game day itself, you have made the lanes’ acquaintance, so to speak.
Make Your Practice Sessions Count
Every throw should be regarded as a championship throw even during the practice sessions. You will then develop the optimum mind and body connection with each practice.
You and the other players will be given two practice sessions. First, the open practice where players have the opportunity to observe the lane conditions and possible transitions come tournament time. Second, the 10-minute practice before the actual competition begins is the best time to develop the desired miss room, and it’s an opportunity you can’t miss.
Bowling is a skill and it pays to practice it until your skills are elevated. And then you practice some more until you can actually beat every other bowler in the room.
