San Diego Lawn Bowling Club

About The Game

Lawn bowls is played on a rectangular section of grass called a “rink.” One to four players form opposing teams and alternate rolling their bowls toward a small white ball (the “jack”) at the far end of the rink. 

 

After all bowls are rolled in one direction, a team scores one point for each of its bowls that end up closer to the jack than the opponent’s closest bowl.

 

The bowls are not spherical. One side is slightly flattened, which causes the bowl to curve as it slows down and that’s where it gets challenging.
