Why play bowls?
It is a game you can play at any age, but you are always learning and improving. There is just as much mental stimulation in bowling as there is physical exercise, and it is just as valuable in terms of social interaction.
It consists of rolling coloured bowls, as close as possible to a white ball, called the jack. There is a weight bias in the bowls, and so they don't go in a straight line, but in a curve (called a draw).
