5 Arcade Bowling Tips That Are Right Up Your Alley

Bowling is more than just a recreational sport — it's an exciting and competitive activity that has stood the test of time. Whether you're a seasoned bowler or a novice in Singapore looking to have some fun at the arcade, Timezone’s incredible Mini and Social Bowling alleys in Singapore will satisfy your craving for strikes and spares.


Tips to Boost Your Arcade Bowling Skills


Get a Proper Grip of the Ball

One of the foundations of a successful bowling throw is getting the right grip on the ball. Experiment with different finger positions until you find a grip that feels comfortable and secure. A proper grip will give you better control over the ball and help you achieve more accurate throws.


Learn to Aim Properly

Aim is everything in bowling. Take your time to assess the lane and the positioning of the pins. Find a target on the lane, such as a specific arrow or dot, and align your throw accordingly. Practice makes perfect, so don't be discouraged if it takes some time to master your aim.


Gauge the Perfect Speed

Finding the right balance of speed is crucial for a successful throw. Experiment with different speeds and observe how the ball reacts on the lane. Too much speed may result in pins bouncing off each other, while too little speed might not generate enough power to knock them down. Practice and adjust your speed until you find the sweet spot.


Make the Perfect Release

The release is the final crucial element of a successful bowling throw. Aim for a smooth and controlled release, letting the ball roll off your fingers naturally. Avoid gripping the ball tightly or forcing the release. A clean release will help the ball maintain its trajectory and increase your chances of hitting the pins with precision.
