Lawn Bowls

CBC #2.jpg

Lawn Bowls is the game that takes a second to learn, but a lifetime to master. A precision sport in which the aim is to roll bowls closest to a smaller white/yellow ball (the ‘jack’ or ‘kitty’).

The sport is played indoors and outdoors on grass or artificial surfaces known as a ‘green’ which is divided into parallel playing strips known as ‘rinks’.

During competition, one opponent flips a coin to see who commences a segment of the competition (known as an ‘end’), by laying the mat and rolling the jack to the other end of the green to serve as a target.

Once it has come to rest, the jack is aligned to the centre of the rink and players take turns to roll their bowls from the mat towards the jack and thereby build up the ‘head’ (the cluster of bowls around the jack).
