What is Bowls?
The thing about bowls is that you just have to roll with it... Bowls is a game of precision, accuracy and a steady hand. In bowls, you take to the lawns in teams or as individuals and take turns rolling bowls towards a smaller ball known as the jack. But don’t expect a calm encounter, filled to the brim with strategy, you’re often seconds away from a game changing move from your opposition, try something new and give bowls a go!
