[quote]Far too often I see bowlers aligned too far left at address to their intended target line. This misalignment at address results in compensations during the approach in order to launch the ball on the intended line. These compensations often result in a loss of lateral spine tilt as the body tries to maintain balance due to the misalignment./quote] Hi Jim, above is your quote from a prevision query. My question is how do you line up? I had remembered your quote so i moved 2 boards right to bowl at the same target, it seems ok, but am wondering how to get there and how do you know when you are?

Thanks for the question, I’m sure you are not the only one trying to figure this out.

The European Tenpin Bowling Federation teaches bowling through a method called……ETT

Everything Towards the Target

ETT is shaped with three main movements:

WTT - Walk Towards the Target
STT - Swing Towards the Target
RTT - Release Towards the Target

The attached slide below shows three different ball paths:
1) Bowler playing straight up the second arrow
2) Bowler playing slightly left to right at the second arrow
3) Bowler playing even deeper at the third arrow.

In all three cases the body at address is aligned to the target in order that the bowler can:
WTT - Walk Towards the Target
STT - Swing Towards the Target
RTT - Release Towards the Target

Far too often I see bowlers in the address positions of bowlers #2 & #3.......trying to play the target line of bowler #1.

This type of misalignment at address will require compensations during the approach in order for that bowler to be able to deliver the ball to the intended target line.

See slide labeled “Misalignment” below.


Hopefully these graphical representations will help explain what my written word did not.

If not post again and I’ll gladly give it another try.

A special thanks for the knowledge provided by Onder Gurkan and Juha Maja of the ETBF team.
