To get a taster for the type of coaching we provide at Welwyn Garden City Bowls Club, please watch the videos below which outline an overview of bowl delivery, aiming points and common faults.
Ensuring the correct bowl delivery will enable you to maximise all shots.
Learning how to correctly grip the bowl, identify your delivery line and correctly release the bowl is vital for effective bowling.
To secure accurate shots on the jack, you need to effectively identify your aiming points.
Picking a point down the other end of the green will help your aim and accuracy.
Occasionally mistakes can creep into your delivery action; for instance wobbling bowls, bounce on delivery or overstepping.
Your bowls coach will be able to help you identify and correct these common faults.
