Synopsis Vernon Algernon Lewis burst onto the bowling scene at the tender age of 35 and rapidly became a legend in his own lifetime.

Just two years later he and Mildred Trott almost won the Tonypandy Day Care Centre Mixed Pairs Open. Vernon insists the medication his opponents claimed essential to their health gave them an unfair advantage.

Undaunted by this setback Vernon established himself as Penypont Bowling Club's Top Skip. Although bad luck and unscrupulous opponents denied him further trophies he established himself as a stalwart of the club. In this book Vernon reveals what it takes to get to the top.
