Lawn Bowls is a game of both luck and strategy. This is a wonderful game to
play to be active due to the walking, throwing and squatting. It is great for
people of all ages, races and sex. Any number of players can play as long as
teams are even. The object is to get your balls closer to the jack than your
opponents. Once everyone has taken turns delivering their bowls, counting the
number of bowls closer than your opponent’s closest bowl scores the points.
The difficulty comes when the jack moves. The jack can be located anywhere from
70 to 114 feet from the mat and is thrown into its position. Teams roll bowls
(also known as woods) that weigh 1.5 kg and are between 12 and 14.5 cm in
diameter. They can be made of rubber, wood, or metal, but they are all flat
on one side so that the ball curves when thrown. So go out and enjoy a game
with your friends and family.
