The basics.....

Well, you stand on a rubber mat and roll your bowl along the Green so that it finishes up as close as possible to a small white ball - the ‘jack’, or ‘cot’ - which is about 20m    ( about 65ft) away. No clubs, rackets, bats or any other implements are used, it's just you and the bowl!

 

Quite straight forward really!

.........in a nutshell.....

Bowls is a game which can be played by anyone of any age. 

Having an inbuilt talent for making up excuses involving weight, bias, worm casts, the Skip, and anything else within a 5 mile radius can be an asset!

 

The Wacky World of Bowls

The reality.......

You are standing on the mat full of confidence, you have selected your bowl and it sits comfortably in your hand, you take an elegant step forward and swing your arm down gracefully so that the bowl makes a smooth contact with the Green. You now watch with pride as you bowl glides serenely across the Green obeying your every hope........then at about 3/5ths of the way your bowl takes on a mind of its own...................

.....and the benefits....

....come and improve your tactical skills, your mobility, concentration, co-ordination, self esteem (and more!) all in a sociable atmosphere without breaking into a sweat....and it's cheaper than the Gym!!
