|Synopsis||First published in 2005 Ron Collingridge's book is arguably the first one - other than the laws - devoted to short mat bowls. Topics covered include the origin of the game, equipment, technique, etiquette, type of shot and an insight of the rules. As an umpire and instructor/coach in the sport, the author's credentials are well founded and the book contains everything a beginner needs to know in an easy to read style supplemented with clear illustrations and photographs. Established bowlers too will almost certainly benefit from reading it.
