The best arm bowlers in Australia are in Devonport for the 9th National Bowling Arm Championships this week.

Arm bowling allows bowlers to use a mechanical device or arm to grip and release the bowl without bending over.

Bowling arms were introduced into the sport of lawn bowls in the early 2000s and there are now more than 40,000 users throughout Australia, with 250 in Tasmania.
