Lawn bowls is a precision sport in which the goal is to roll slightly asymmetrical balls (called bowls) closer to a smaller white ball (the ‘jack’) than your opponent is able to do.

The simplicity of the game contributes to its adaptability. Because of its relaxed pace and comparatively light physical demands and easy to understand rules, more and more people are engaging in this popular sport which dates back to Sir Francis Drake. 

It’s competitiveness, skill and the fact that it is a non-contact sport, suits people from teen years through to their nineties. However, there is a considerable professional competition which many younger men and women play.
