"If you're a serious bowler, a BTM subscription is a must"
When I decided to get back into the game after an extended time away, I knew that one of the first things I needed to do to catch up was to restart my Bowling This Month subsription. Having been a prior subscriber, I knew that if I wanted to get up to date with the latest ball releases and new coaching information, this is a no-brainer. After I signed up, I was thrilled to see the expanded coaching contributors and topics. BTM has really upped their game on the education front. When I first started receiving BTM 12-13 years ago, most of the articles were physical game based. Now, articles range from the mental game, to lane breakdown/oil patterns, specific equipment tweaks, and on and on and on. Add to that a ball review process that has been out in front for a very long time and you have a resource that every bowler should take advantage of. I was out of the game for about 5 years, but after diving into the library, I felt like I was up to date within no time. If you're a serious bowler, a BTM subscription is a must.
- Donnie Philbeck (Bowler)
"An absolute must for a pro shop operator"
BTM is by far THE best bowling magazine for the serious bowler. Period. An absolute must for a pro shop operator; to stay informed and up to date with products, technical information, instruction, important industry issues, and more. Thanks to the new owners for keeping it going!
- Jeff Miller (Bowler and pro shop operator)
"...rely heavily on the quality articles that BTM publishes"
I am a Silver-level USBC professional coach and use BTM constantly. I read, and re-read, all of the articles written by high quality bowling industry professionals. I study all of the ball reviews. I use the articles to improve my own bowling game and improve my coaching. When considering a ball recommendation or purchase, I always go to the BTM review seeking a professional evaluation of the ball before I go to the pro shop professional or client. I want to be an informed bowler, consumer, and coach. Finally, I am studying for my Gold-level USBC certification and will rely heavily on the quality articles that BTM publishes.
- Denny O’Neill (Bowler and coach)
"The instructional material found here cannot be found anywhere else"
I have been a subscriber to BTM for over 20 years. The instructional material found here cannot be found anywhere else. I devour each issue from cover to cover. I have kept all the hard copy versions for reference. My coaching has improved. My game has improved. Thank you BTM for all the help and guidance. Keep up the good work. The online version is easier to use and can be an instant reference while coaching.

"I will continue my subscription as long as it is being produced"
I have subscribed to BTM for several years. As a coach, it has helped me coaching the kids in our junior club to such an extent that we have had at least two in the Scotland Junior Squad for the past 9 years. The articles are well written and laid out. I will continue my subscription as long as it is being produced.
"...an excellent way to get an independent review of bowling balls"
I have found Bowling This Month to be an excellent way to get an independent review of bowling balls. Also as a pro shop operator it is an excellent way to have a uniform rating system among all of the companies.
"...all for just pennies on the dollar"
First of all, I've been a bowler for over 30 years. I've been working and running a pro shop for 18 years. I've learned so much and have met so many people from the bowling world because of BTM. I won't take up the space telling all the stories, but I will tell just one: I got to attend BTM's Super School 1997 in the Detroit area and it was the start of an eye opening experience that just keeps getting better, and all for just pennies on the dollar. Thank you.
"...love it, support it, and recommend it to all my customers and friends"
I have been with BTM almost since the start, love it, support it, and recommend it to all my customers and friends in Australia. BTM has given me so much information and inspiration for seminars and clinics that I have conducted over the years. It is simply the best magazine in the world for serious bowlers. Keep up the good work.
"...bowling is changing and BTM helps me keep up"
I am a USBC-certified Bronze coach, and I have been a coach in a junior program for over 20 years. I use BTM as a reference guide on many occasions. I have 5 years of past issues that I keep and re-read every chance that I get. The sport of bowling is changing and BTM helps me keep up.
- Ben Wong (Bowler and coach)
"...the best and most complete information I have discovered in 20 years"
It is the best and most complete information I have discovered in 20 years. I know that many players, coaches, and pro shop operators think like me all around the world. We need absolutely BTM in the future. Thanks to everybody at BTM.
- Gérard Lettree (Bowler, pro shop operator, and coach)
"...helped me take my game to a much higher level, including a PBA Regional title!"
I often get ask when participating in Pro Am events what is the place to go for coaching, technical bowling information, or generally how to improve knowledge of the game. I always point them towards BTM, as the knowledge I have learned from BTM's authors and coaches have helped me improve and take my game to a much higher level, including a PBA regional title! Topics from the physical game, to lane play, to ball motion and the mental approach are all covered. It is a must for all serious bowlers who want to improve and continue learning more about the sport we love.
