Congrats to you for giving something new a try!! I'm sure it wasn't as embarrassing as you think. You have to factor in a bit of a learning curve as well to how things are run vs what you are used too.
I would definitely give it another shot (pardon the pun) if you get the opportunity and see how it goes a second time.
If you find you don't enjoy it then, stick with your bowling pin matches. Definitely whatever you enjoy! (And I confess as well, I don't know of bowling pin matches either).
