Synopsis Bowl to Win is the ultimate coaching manual aimed not only at those new to the game of bowls but also at more proficient players looking for ways to improve their technique. With over a million registered players and new national bowling associations being set up all round the world, this game of subtlety and skill is on the rise up the sporting ladder. What's more, television and media coverage can only serve to encourage aspiring players, both young and old, onto the greens.

With the practical approach to the game in mind, former champion David Bryant and 1992 World Outdoor Singles champion Tony Allcock have now teamed up to produce this in-depth instructional guide to polishing up every aspect of your bowling technique. Starting with the basics of line and length, choice of equipment and shot selection, the book goes on to cover pre-match preparation, the art of delivery and reading the greens, training and fitness techniques, singles and team play, followed by an analysis of the world game and a breakdown of international rules and regulations. Suggestions on how to develop your game are provided with the aid of full-colour illustrations and handy tips from the authors. Bowl to Win will encourage you to examine closely the styles used by the top professionals and correct any flaws in your game - helping you to become a superior all-round player.

Following on from the success of Bowl with Bryant and Improve Your Bowls, this book is sure to appeal to players of all ages and ability and would make an invaluable addition to the sporting library of any keen bowler.
