How To Hold A Bowling Ball

This is if you are new to bowling and do not have your own bowling ball.

First go to the rack of balls at your bowling center and try to find a ball that the thumb hole is not too big and not to small. Then put your thumb all the way in the thumb hole of this ball and then lay your hand, or the span of your hand, palm flat over the ball so that the second crease of your middle and ring fingers are about 1/4 inch over the first edge of the finger holes on your bowling ball.

Most of the time the bowling balls on the rack will not fit perfectly. That is how you find the proper thumb hole and span. Then make sure the finger holes on this ball are not too big and not to tight. This is how you find a ball off-the-rack at your local bowling center. It is advised that you buy your own bowling ball as soon as you are able.
