Bowling in a Florida Retirement CommunityAmenities like our four-lane bowling center make Lake Ashton rank high among active adult communities in FL. Regardless of your skill level, these tips will help improve your bowling game:
1. Get the right ball. In any sport, correct equipment is essential. In bowling, the ball is your most important piece of equipment. Be sure you’re using one that’s the right weight, material and finger-grip fit.
2. Bowl often. To make progress, you need to bowl once or twice a week. Our bowling center makes that easy and convenient – something to keep in mind if you’re considering active adult communities in FL.
3. Practice your approach. A four-step approach works best for most non-professional bowlers. Keep your shoulders square to the front, your head up, arm swing smooth, and pace consistent and even.
4. Roll the ball. A bowling ball should never be thrown; practice rolling the ball so it lands quietly and quickly rolls down the lane. You’ll hit more pins that way.
5. Visualize and analyze. Visualize what you’re going to do before you do it. Then analyze the results. When you do well, make notes of what you did, how the ball felt, where it hit, and anything else significant. Keep those notes for future references so you can repeat your success.
6. Practice wherever you are. If you can’t get to an alley, practice your approach (but not your release!) on any smooth surface with a long, clear distance.
7. Get good at picking up spares. If you can consistently pick up spares, you should be able to hold a 180 average without strikes. Practicing will help you improve
