Kirkwood Hospice Bowling Bookathon

RICHARD ARMITAGE OF THONGSBRIDGE HAS BOUGHT THE BOOK BY BUYING £5 WORTH OF KIRKWOOD HOSPICE WEEKLY DRAW TICKETS AND THEN DONATING THE BOOK TO THE HOSPICE FOR ONWARD SALE. THANKS RICHARD AND GOOD LUCK IN THE DRAW.


You may recall that I mentioned a new book on bowling a few weeks ago that was very different to the usual bowling writing. The book was called 'The Inner Game of Crown Green Bowling' written by Andy Fleming from Barnsley who only took up the sport last year. We have a copy donated which is now on sale via the website. You can get this copy of the book if you buy £5 worth of Weekly Draw tickets for Kirkwood Hospice. The full purchase price of the book is £13.99 from Amazon.


The idea is that one copy purchased by a website visitor is now available to be passed on if you make that £5 investment. There is an element of trust involved in this transaction but we know that you are all very honest individuals. So first to respond to this invitation and pledge that they will purchase those tickets from any Kirkwood Hospice Charity Shop gets the book. Claim the book now


I am really hoping that when the new owner has read the book that they in turn will offer it back to website visitors under the same arrangement. Let's keep the book circulating around the bowling community and at the same time provide some benefit to our local hospice. We could even call it a Bookathon to see how long we can keep the book in circulation by raising more money for our hospice.


The book is a very different experience and concentrates on the thinking process every bowler should undertake each time they go out to practice or play in a match. It is very much a new-boy approach as he shares his learnings and experience by delving into areas to help him progress his game beyond the physical aspects of it.


I know that at least two website regulars bought the book, Philip Walker being one of them and he posted this review and insight to what it did for him.


Philip Walker: There are very few books on crown green bowling and those that exist are very traditional in terms of the basics to be a decent bowler.

But having bought this book it is very different to the others. Yes , it does inform you of the basics but it concentrates much more on ...

Training the mind

The art of concentration

Goal setting

Negative impact of trying too hard

Creative visualisations

Effective practice,and,

The core principles of the inner game.

Now, there’s a few topics which will have some of us puzzled!!
