Synopsis This is the latest in the series of Crowood Sports Guides and to the best of my knowledge is the first bowls book of its type to be published in the UK in at least a decade. It provides sound, practical advice that will help to make you a better sportsperson whether learning the basic skills of bowls, discovering more advanced techniques or reviewing the fundamentals of your game. Profusely illustrated it is well written, logically structured and suitable for both beginners and those with some experience. The book features:
  • Valuable advice on practice, skills, techniques, team spirit, self-control and all aspects of playing bowls
  • Photographs of top players in action
  • Information boxes containing key points and useful tips
  • Sequence photographs and detailed diagrams in colour
  • Introduction to rules and equipment
