Tenpin Bowling (Year 5-6)

  • taken by Afiq Zuhairi for Deck the Walls 2018, a project by the Raffles Photographic Society (Year 5-6)

    When someone finds out you’re a bowler, the conversation usually goes like this:
    “Wow,​ ​how​ ​heavy​ ​is​ ​your​ ​ball?”
    “That’s​ ​heavy!”
    “You​ ​must​ ​be​ ​really​ ​strong!”
    Contrary​ ​to​ ​popular​ ​belief,​ ​throwing​ ​the​ ​perfect​ ​shot​ ​that​ ​results​ ​in​ ​a​ ​strike​ ​requires​ ​more focus,​ ​technique,​ ​and​ ​technical​ ​knowledge​ ​of​ ​your​ ​equipment​ ​and​ ​the​ ​lane​ ​conditions​ ​than strength.

    If​ ​you’re​ ​up​ ​for​ ​some​ ​constant​ ​mental​ ​stimulation,​ ​test​ ​your​ ​tenacity​ ​when​ ​faced​ ​with​ ​ten​ ​pins 60​ ​feet​ ​away,​ ​and​ ​want​ ​to​ ​be​ ​part​ ​of​ ​a​ ​fun​ ​and​ ​loving​ ​family​ ​of​ ​bowlers,​ ​we​ ​look forward​ ​to seeing​ ​you​ ​at​ ​the​ ​trials​!
