Bowls truly is the sport for all - all ages, all sexes and all abilities.

It is a game that takes just seconds to learn - and the rest of your bowling career to master. With more than 2,500 clubs across England, there's bound to be one near to you. And bowls is a relatively cheap game compared to other sports, whether you choose to join a club or 'pay and play' at your local park. You will find below a basic introduction to the sport, but for more information contact your nearest club.
