What is Lawn Bowls?

Lawn Bowls is a game that is played around the world and was the precursor to curling. The two sports have much in common.

·      Games are divided into ends.

·      Team members may include a lead, second, third and skip.

·      Scoring – one point is awarded for each bowl that is closer to the Jack (target) than the opponent’s.

A variety of games can be played including singles, pairs, triples and fours. The challenge comes from the fact that the bowls are not round, but slightly biased. This requires the bowler to deliver their bowl outward at an angle so it curves toward the Jack. Mastering the distance, aim and curve is a fun and addictive challenge.
