Give yourself time to be sure you have packed up every piece of equipment you will need during the tournament so that when the time draws near, you can focus on the game.
Maintain a professional image
You should arrive at the alley with plenty of time to spare (no pun intended) so you can keep a relaxed mentality towards the venue, fans and competition.
Give Yourself a Proper Warm-up
Undergoing a series of exercises before the game can do wonders for both getting your muscles loose and prepared for the competition. Just because bowling isn’t a full-contact sport doesn’t mean you can ignore this part of the preparations.
Maintaining your cool and keeping a level head is crucial in a tournament situation. Becoming upset during a bad string of frame is only going to make a bad situation worse. Tournament champions are the ones who are able to fight back against adversity and maintain a positive outlook throughout the competition.
