About the Sport of Bowls:

Lawn bowls is one of the best kept secrets in sporting circles, but with the current explosion in its popularity (particularly among younger players) that is changing fast!

Whether you’re looking for a recreational activity with plenty of social interaction or a fast-paced strategy-based sport offering the opportunity of achieving at the highest levels, lawn bowls is the logical choice.

If you thought lawn bowls is a sedate leisure activity just for older people, you are in for a pleasant shock. It can be a game of skill and strategic tactics or simply enjoyable and relaxing – it’s up to you!

It’s only in lawn bowls that sayings such as ‘How fast can you drive’ or ‘Being biased is a good thing’ or ‘Get one in the head’ or even ‘Hit the jack’ get a completely new meaning.

Bowls is #1Sport4Life – you can start at age 7 and still be enjoying it at 100! You don’t need substantial training or skills to have a great game on the green.
