Bowls is a strategic, challenging and fun sport that can be enjoyed by anyone. A target sport, played on a flat grass surface, it's similar in concept to the Italian game of Bocce or the French game Petanque. The game is played on a simple premise. Players deliver a set number of bowls to a pre-rolled target known as the "jack". Players/teams take turns bowling with the goal of resting their bowls closer to the jack than any of their opponents' bowls. Traditionally, players/teams complete an "end" by rolling all their bowls to the jack. Once a score is determined, a new end begins with everyone rolling their bowls back in the opposite direction. Lawn Bowls is played by people of all ages and abilities. Getting started does not require a high level of strength, stamina or athletic ability. Join us at Roselawn and find out more about the game.
