FIVE REASONS TO ENJOY LAWN BOWLING
1. The rules are simple
The rules are easy to learn. The game takes a lifetime to perfect.
You can play singles, pairs or in teams
Bowls is played on grass or a carpet (the green). A game starts by throwing the jack (a small white ball) down the green. Each team has different color bowls to roll towards the jack. The person who gets nearest to the jack gets a point and wins what’s called the ‘end’.
2. There are many varieties to try
The most common type of bowls is flat green bowls (represented by Bowls England), which is played outdoors on a level grass surface. But that’s not the only way to bowl. There is crown green, federation,
3. It’s a gentle way to get active
“I don’t think you realize how much walking you do until you actually play it,” says Matt. “You can walk three miles while you’re playing. You’re only doing 30m stints at a time, but you’re doing a lot of them.” On top of the walking, your arms will get a workout as you perfect your bowling technique and your leg muscles will develop as you lunge into the throw.
4. There’s a social side
Besides daily games our club offers regular social functions. There are also opportunities to join the club committee or volunteer in the day-to-day running of the club. “There is a lot of socializing and you don’t have to be competitive to play,” says Bob. “If you just want to play with your friends on a Wednesday afternoon, there’s nothing stopping you.”
5. It’s perfect for all
“Bowls truly is the sport for all, regardless of age, sex or physical ability,” says Doug. The gentle pace and lack of contact means you’ll often find children playing with adults and people of different abilities and fitness levels on the same team.
