I have never been Bowling before do you have any hints and tips on how to bowl?
How to hold the bowling ball is key. If you are holding it for the first time the holes are the spots where your fingers are placed. You walk, aim and roll the bowling ball at the pins, do not cross the line or it will be a foul. Try not to drop the ball.
If you have any other questions please contact us.
