WTBA Paris Pattern

The WTBA Paris oil pattern is 47 ft long. For most of you, this will be the longest pattern you will ever bowl on. When bowling on longer patterns, do not expect a lot of hook down the lane. You will want to play more direct and look for "hold" on your misses. If you miss to the right of your target, you will most likely have very little recovery. Although this is a very long pattern, it shouldn't be that low scoring if it is attacked correctly. Straighter players will see very little hook so they will need to be play a more direct line to the pocket around the 11-14 board. Players that hook the ball will be able to play between 15-20 at the arrows but need to make sure they do not try to swing the ball out to far.
