Synopsis Harry Barratt offers straightforward advice on how to improve your bowling skills. Techniques and tactics, from first steps to advanced play, are explained in detail, including choosing and caring for equipment, how to read the green, delivery and release, and how to best use the bias. Further sections on coaching and fault correction, competition tactics and suggested practice exercises, together with demonstration and action photographs and explanatory diagrams, complete the comprehensive coverage, making this an invaluable book for all crown green bowlers.

"This book, written by an expert, will create interest and inspire the right attitudes, helping to produce bowlers worthy of the sport."
Gwyn Morris, Former BCGBA President
