Ottawa, Ontario | April 20th, 2016

Bowls Canada Boulingrin is excited to release the 2016 Bowler’s Handbook.  The Handbook is larger in size, easier to read, produced in colour and written in user-friendly language targeted for the new bowler. 

This updated version focuses on everything a new bowler needs to know for a successful start in the sport of bowls.  Content includes an explanation of essential rules and game formats, an illustrated overview of the basic delivery, and examples of the most commonly used hand signals.  The guidelines for game etiquette and summary of common terminology are sure to help newcomers feel ready for action.

Available in a soft-cover format that is 25 pages in length, this “5 ½ x 8 ½” inch booklet easily tucks into your bowls bag for easy access on the greens.  The Bowler’s Handbook is an invaluable resource for both those new to the game and for those looking for a quick and portable reference guide.
