Bowling Places in Nairobi.

Which are the Bowling places in Nairobi? This city is the centre of fun, pleasure, gratification and an entertainment powerhouse.

There are four major malls across Nairobi where you can get your desired activity Bowling which comes along with Air Hockey, Foosball, Pool Table and Trampoline for the kids among others.

But before I give you the bowling places in Nairobi. First things first.

What is Bowling? Am aware not many are familiar with the game.

Well, Bowling is whereby a fairly heavy ball is rolled down a long and narrow shiny oily wooden lane towards some structured spikes, known as pins which are usually 10 and the light of the moment here is to knock all the pins down at once if possible.

If you happen to knock down all the pins at once though this is very rare, this is called a strike. If you knock down all the pins with the second ball it is known as spare.

Make sure you have the Right Bowling Shoes ( For Ladies) and shouldn`t be worn outside or in the washrooms. They are dedicated to bowling.

Scoring is based on the number of pins you will knockdown.

A good grip of the ball enables a classic release hence enabling an incredible delivery.

Make sure you`re lined strategically with the pins accordingly, you can do this by following the dots that align up with the pins.

Bowling is usually played in four simple steps.

First Step: You should move the right foot forward.

Second Step: This time move your left foot forward about 12 inches as the ball starts to fall to the natural hand swing.

Third Step: The right foot steps forward again at the height of the hand back ball swing.

Fourth Step: The left foot slides forward again while the hand holding the ball swings forward, then gently release the ball at the level of your ankle as the right foot pushes for velocity.

Now that you have a slight brief on what to do once you get in with your friends. Let’s dive in straight to Bowling Places in Nairobi.
