Quick Tips – Swing

The Swing is the Thing!! The key components of your swing are consistent speed control and accuracy to your target – tempo and direction. Begin the swing by moving the ball held in front of your bowling shoulder out and downward toward your target. Try to sequence the beginning movement of the ball with the first step of a four step approach or slightly before the first step. Seek a free, smooth, and uncontrolled back-swing along your target path allowing the ball to reach shoulder level or higher directly behind your shoulder at the completion of the backswing.

The forward swing should move downward and under your shoulder arriving next to the ankle of your slide foot with about one inch of space to avoid hitting the ankle as your hand begins the releasing process. Ideally, the front part of your bowling arm (where blood is normally drawn in a laboratory) should be facing the pins at the moment of release. The forward-swing continuing motion after the release, known as the follow-through, should also maintain a target orientation. The swing should follow-through high enough as to allow the elbow of your bowling arm to attain shoulder height or higher each and every delivery. This quick tip will help you produce an effective swing motion. Now, go practice!
