Interesting Bowling Tips for the Ladies

By: rhusain
When you makes mistakes that's when you know where and how to improve yourself. The ladies are more prone to make mistakes initially. The energy level and the kind of muscle power that the game of bowling needs might not be with every lady. Find some of the reason here so that it helps you next time you play the game.

Lack of a good push away
Many feminine bowlers fail at the very start because, instead of pushing the ball outward and away from them when they put the ball in motion on the first step, they allow the ball to drop almost directly downward. Thus they get a jerky start with little or no chance to build up a proper backswing.

Not going to the foul line in a direct line.
Because of the weight of the ball, many of the fair sex allow themselves to be pulled out of the direct line of approach. They zigzag. Improving your timing and footwork, to the point where the ball feels lighter to you, will do the most toward overcoming this fault.

Allowing the ball to pull the right shoulder out of line
This is much more common with the ladies than with the men. When the right shoulder is pulled back out of line, the body is turned sidewise, which almost always results in a poor finishing position and a loss of accuracy. Keep your shoulders squared to the target at all times.

Not throwing a fast enough ball
The average woman can use more speed. I don't mean that I expect her to use a cannonball delivery, but certainly there is a little more action that can be gained at the pin end than is normally done. 1 have seen women deliver balls that obviously are rolled with only a fraction of the strength they possess. It is possible, you know, to throw too slow a ball just as it is possible to throw too fast a ball. Which recalls a day in Denver when I saw what I'm sure must rank with the slowest balls of all time. I was watching this particular lady closely because of the manner in which she stood very rigidly in her starting position and held the ball motionless, for what seemed like a full two minutes. Then she tentatively pushed the ball out, and drew it back again.

Holding it against her body and directly in front of her, she finally walked slowly and majestically to the foul line, did her little push away motion and drew the ball back again. Then, stooping low, she daintily deposited the ball on the lane with a sort of little pat, such as one might give a child. To exaggerate a bit, I might say that the pinboy, seeing the sphere finally on its way, took one look at it and went out to a near-by restaurant for a sandwich and coffee. After finishing off his little repast with a cigarette, he came back just in time to see the ball hit the pins. Believe it or not, the ball hit the 1-3 pocket. The 1-pin fell against the 2 and knocked it over, the 2 in turn toppling the 4 and 7-pins. The 3-pin fell against the 6, and the latter knocked over the 10-pin. When the pins had stopped falling, only the 5-pin remained standing, and the ball was resting against it. Which merely proves my point you can roll too slow a ball.

Now here you must have know by now what could be your flaws and weaknesses which needs to improve if you are really interested in playing the game of bowling to the level of the perfection. This I am telling because your weaknesses or strength physically or mentally can put you to shame or fame.
