The object of the game of bowls is to roll your bowls closer to the Jack (white ball) than your opposition. On average there are 7 rinks on each green. (7 games can be played on the one green at a time)

Firstly the ‘Jack’ is rolled up the green by one of the players. Once the Jack has come to rest at the other end of the green, each player consecutively takes turns in trying to roll their two bowls as close as possible to the jack. Once all the bowls have been bowled, the player/team with the closest bowl to the Jack scores however they have inside their opponents closest bowl. This is called an ‘end’. Once you have given the score for that ‘end’, the Jack is rolled back the other way and another end is then played.

A game consists of 10 ends, at the end of which the team with the highest score is the winner.

So how do you bowl? All lawn bowls have a bias, which is to say they roll in a semi-circle rather than straight. This bias is caused not by weights on one side of the bowl but by the shape of the bowl itself. When bowling remember that the side of the bowl which has the SMALL disk is the side that the bowl turns towards.

When standing on the mat, you will notice that it is in line with the number of the rink you are on, to the left and right of the number is a yellow marker peg. This peg indicates the boundary of the rink, should you bowl a ball that finishes outside this peg it is ‘out of bounds’ and should be removed and placed on the bank
