Synopsis This book, an entirely practical one, is somewhat different from any other published book on bowls. It has been written more especially for those who want to excel in competition and tournament bowls, including singles, pairs, rinks and all team games; in other words to help the good bowler become a successful bowler.

The author, as a successful tournament player of wide experience, is well qualified to write such a book. He has been a Welsh International since 1946, was Welsh Singles Champion in 1954, and has won ten open singles tournaments.
