BNH General Conditions of Play.

Better Bowler

The ‘Better Bowler’ videos are a new initiative from the Bowls New Zealand coaching group for the benefit of the entire bowling community. In them, we sit down with some of our best bowlers and pose questions to them – just as you would if you had the chance to do so in a bowling club. They’re short, sharp and contain pearls of wisdom left, right and centre.
