Practice at Akashi
Summer practice at Akashi is a great time to hone your skills on fast greens.


Getting in some much needed practice at Akashi Park where the speed of the greens is normally quite a bit faster than at Shiawase no Mura. The synthetic grass can heat up in summer and run extra hot, which requires some fine tuning prior to compeition days. Summer has been wet this year but temperatures around 35 degrees bearing down on us from midday until 3pm have required extra concentration.

Some good points for summer bowls:
  • Consider the temperature of the surface in addition to wind conditions
  • Dont let the speed of the green put you off from deliverig a postive bowl
  • Focus on Good, Better, Best ball
  • Keep up your fluids and wear a hat
