1: Buy a bowling ball
Buying a bowling ball that is made specifically for you is a great way to take your game to the next level. A ball that fits your hand will be much easier to throw and you’ll be able to throw a heavier weight (usually 1-2 lbs. more) which can help with the pin action.
2: Join a league
Joining a league will give you the practice you need to improve your game dramatically. Not only are you putting in a lot of good practice, but you also get the benefit of interacting with many other bowlers at various skill levels who can give you great bowling tips.
3: Practice, practice, practice
This may seem like common sense, but taking the time to bowl that one extra game during the week or on the weekend helps tremendously. Practicing also gives you time to try new techniques or make adjustments that you may not want to test out on league night. And what better time to test out a new ball?
4: Pick up your spares
If you’re not striking you need to be picking up your spares. Picking up most of your spares can turn that bad non-striking game into an easy 150+ game Let’s say you’re constantly getting 9 and sparing,till you hit the 10th frame, you’ll end up with a 190, not too shabby, right?
