Synopsis Clarence Jones, editor of Word Bowls and, incidentally, author of three highly successful books on tennis, has now brought his 44 years' experience of playing, teaching and writing about ball games at top world class to the subject of bowls. In this book he explains the theoretical science of the game and, through detailed study and analysis of the world's greatest players, provides the reader with the basic knowledge of the way to become a champion.

The book covers the subject from the construction of the green and the bowls, through the necessary techniques of play and the importance of being physically fit for the game, to the accounts by a selection of distinguished players of their finest winning shots, and an analysis of how champions win. After this, as Clarence Jones says, it is up to the reader to 'give it a real go'.
