The game of lawn bowls is very simple to learn but can take anyone years to
perfect. Games are played in a mannerly fashion, along with positive support
and comments for all players.
The goal of the game is to get more of your team's bowls closer to the jack
(the small white ball) than your opponents on each "end" played. A typical
game is 14 or more ends, with an overall running tally being kept at all times
to establish the winner.
Lawn bowls come in sets of 4, the maximum number of bowls you will roll in
one end of a game.
Only 3 bowls each are used in triples and 2 in Rinks as quadruples is known.
The big surprise of the game is when you first pick up a bowl, and feel how
heavy it is.
All bowls come in sets with different pictures on each set to identify who the
owner is - which is very important when you come to scoring.
