Synopsis Few bowlers have not been asked to mark at some stage of their bowls development and this function is often performed as a matter of courtesy rather than from a position of experience and knowledge. This little booklet, much of it based on Keith McKinley Wilson's The Laws, The Duties & The Etiquette Applicable to Markers in Lawn Bowls, provides sound guidance in the duties of a marker and in answering questions that may arise during a match.

The headings include:

  • Etiquette
  • Path to Success
  • Duties: Before the game; On the green before the game commences; During the game (here relevant laws are discussed); After the game
  • General Remarks
  • Questions from Players
  • Questions Asked by Hand Signals
  • Summary of Requirements which Make a Top Grade Marker
  • Things a Marker Should Do
  • Things a Marker Should Never Do
  • Measuring
