Slow down               from Howard Jarrold


Like a lot of you, I was amazed at the quality of the bowling at Potters this year. At LIBC we are so lucky to be able to see so many of those players who produced that quality, playing live at the club.
The Grand Prix is back this week on Monday and Tuesday ( from 8 am to mid afternoon ) where many of the top players will be competing. Do try and find the time to have a look at these players. You can learn a lot by watching them.
Like all sportsmen at the top of their game, they make it look so easy. This is because they give themselves time to execute the delivery, which is probably the biggest single difference between them and your average club player.
So how do they do it? Their skill has been honed over many hours on the rink, and there is no substitute for practise. The key to success is slowing down the backswing, moving slowly and smoothly into the forward swing, releasing the bowl at the bottom of that swing and following through after release.
Remember the arm should swing loosely along the desired line. Just like a clock pendulum that swings along a line, the arm should be in a straight line. Avoid bending your forearm as this produces a whip effect which reduces the ability to produce consistent bowling.
To recap. Arm should be straight and swing loosely along the intended line. The take back fairly slow, the transfer onto the forward swing is not to be rushed, release of the bowl should be at the bottom of the swing and the arm follows through ,still on that line, to a pronounced finish.
If you are one of the new players and are unsure of procedures, or what you should be practicing then have a word with one of the coaches. Don’t feel left out – we are here to help. Coaching times are 4.30 to 6.30pm every Wed and Sun and improver coaching 12.30 to 2.30 every Tuesday. Happy bowling Howard
