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.
It is one of the oldest ball games around and provides an inclusive environment for players of all ages and abilities to play, socially or competitively.
Played on both normal green and synthetic surfaces, Lawn bowls is a multi-disability sport in which people with physical disabilities can participate equally with able-bodied competitors without rule changes.
