I was talking to a friend last night and apparently one of the leagues at my normal house has banned the two handed style in their rules. I was really surprised to hear this because I only know of three people that bowl there that use two handed.

I honestly don't like that rule. I strongly believe that a person has the right to bowl the way they want to. How could a league ban that style when you see pros like Jason Belmonte bowling on TV with it?

What was the rationale for banning two-handed deliveries? It's OK per USBC.

Ignorance, close-mindedness, perhaps even jealousy.

If someone told me this was illegal I'd probably tell them to F-off and quit the league.

I don't bowl this way normally. I can do it and I find that it is a good sort of reset button for me if I'm having a bad game.

This is more like golf and the belly putter, where other golfers feel that the belly putter gives those using it an advantage by being able to hold the end of the putter steady in ones stomach area thus creating an pendulum swing easier. In bowling the two handed style allows an easier way to generate revolutions, and it is a departure from the classic style of delivering the ball. Change is the only constant and there will always be resistance to change. Only time will tell if this is they new way to bowl or only a deviation from the classic delivery style that only a few will use.

Ding, Ding, Ding. People don't like different and new ways of thinking/doing things. Especially the older timers.
