Synopsis The Game of Bowls is the complete, perfect introduction for newcomers and will certainly be helpful to more experienced players. It details the structure of the national and international game, tells the reader how to choose equipment, whether and how to join a club, and explains the vocabulary and etiquette of the game.

By personal example, the authors describe how to start bowling and to improve one's techniques and tactics so that one can aim to play for club, county or country.

Between them, the authors' experience and teaching skills have created a book which should become the standard introduction to the game for years to come.
