Synopsis The main purpose of the book is to show the pupil the right way to the better playing of the ancient game of bowls. Within its pages, beginners at bowls and those with a little knowledge of the game are certain to find interest and instruction. With all the advice before him, the beginner will be safeguarded against committing many technical errors when he first steps on a bowling green.

Reference is made to all aspects of the game of bowls whether it be level green, crown green, or federation styles of play. The diagrams with their accompanying descriptions of various types of shot should prove most helpful, and if the shots are repeatedly practised the beginner's standard of play will be considerably improved.
