Bowling tips for beginners

  • The larger ball is a bowl
  • The small white or yellow ball is the jack.
  • The club supplies these for casual players.
  • The aim of the game is to get your bowl as close to the jack as possible.
  • The bowl has icons on each side. Keep the small icon on the inside of your delivery.
  • The Bowls don’t roll in a straight line, but in a curve.
  • You stand on a mat (supplied by the club) and bowl from alternate ends.
  • The green is very short grass and a ditch surrounds it.
  • The green consists of a number of rinks. You play on a rink.
