Synopsis This is an alphabetically arranged collection of nearly 200 words and phrases used in the flat green game humorously defined and illustrated. Here are three examples to give you a flavour of the style of humour:
  • 'Claw' - Classic bowls grip. Used particularly by the secretary when collecting club subscriptions.
  • 'Flukes' - Other people have flukes. Yours are always brilliant ideas skilfully carried into execution.
  • 'Yard on' - Getting into the lunch queue before all the rest.
