Synopsis Written by Pauline Brooks, Education Director of the Arthritis Foundation of South Australia, and profusely illustrated throughout, Bending for Bowlers is designed for lawn bowlers of all ages to be used as a tool that can help maximise their physical and mental performance for life.

Its aims include:

  • Helping bowlers to become more aware of themselves and how they move and function
  • Learning to think about and analyse the problems associated with the game and about improving skills such as balance and co-ordination
  • Increasing ability through improving joint flexibility and muscle strength
  • Improving performance through increasing concentration and control through relaxation skills
  • Combating the changes of ageing that can ultimately shorten the bowler's career, diminish their performance and spoil their enjoyment of the game
