Videos to help you mark better. These training videos are made by World Bowls and relate primarily to indoor bowls but the basic priciples apply outdoors as well. The first one describes where the marker should stand.
Centering the mat and the jack.
Using the Long Tape (or 30-metre tape) to check for a legal jack length.
Pre-measuring routine including wedging.
This video shows you how to use a box measure. But remember only the umpire is allowed to move bowls out of the head, so if you are a marker DON'T move the bowl as is demonstrated here, just INDICATE it.
Two-handed measuring, walking round the head, finding the nearest measuring points, double-checking.
