|Synopsis||The ability to play a game well is one thing; the ability to pass on the skill to a lesser player is another. Albert Newton, the author of this book, has the capacity, in an unusual degree, to do both. As winner of the Australian Singles Championship in 1957-8, the South Australian Masters Singles in 1962, and other high-ranking events, his position as a player is unquestioned, and as a coach and teacher his services are constantly in demand.
All the important aspects of the game are dealt with here: equipment, the different shots, the play of the various members of the team, tactics and other factors which make bowls one of the most skilful and fascinating of pastimes.
Written in simple language and illustrated with photographs, line drawings and diagrams, The Fundamentals of Lawn Bowls is an invaluable guide to all bowlers who wish to improve their game.
