Join Us on the Green

Bowls, or lawn bowls, is a sport in which the objective is to roll biased balls so that they stop close to a smaller ball called a "jack" or "kitty".

It is played on a bowling green, which may be flat, or convex, or uneven, and is typically played outdoors.

The surface is either natural grass, artificial turf or cotula (in New Zealand).

Bowls is a great venue for getting together with friends, or becoming part of your exercise regiment and socializing routine.
