Synopsis This small pocket-sized book provides the bowler with a number of useful record-keeping forms, and in many ways may be considered a specialist diary-cum-logbook for the bowler. In the descriptions that follow, each page provides space to record several instances of the information described.

The first set of forms, occupying 38 pages, allows recording of personal fixtures and includes headings for 'Date', 'Venue', 'Time' and 'Contact Telephone No'. Next, a set of 28 double-page spreads permits the recording of more detailed fixture information and has headings for 'Date', 'Competition', 'Home or Away', 'Opposition', 'Singles, Pairs etc', 'Partner/s', 'Opponent/s', 'Total Points (For and Against)' and 'Comments'. The final set, of 20 pages, can be used to record rink conditions and includes headings for 'Club', 'Rink No', 'N/S or E/W', 'Wet, Dry, Fast, Slow' and 'Comments'. A calendar, without year or days, completes the register.

The Bowls Register is also available with a different cover design that has similarities to The Bowlers Handbook. The version reviewed here has the same picture on its front cover as The Bowls Handbook and was perhaps published as a companion volume. It also has a number of similarities to the Personal Score Record and the Register of Play.
