Lawn Bowls

The setting may be tranquil, but don’t be fooled. Bowlers mix precision with boldness and they play with focus.

Lawn bowls has been a popular British sport for hundreds of years. The simple objective is to get your bowls closer to the target, known as a 'jack', than your opponent can manage.

Toy bowls sets have been a childhood staple for many generations of children and offer a cheap opportunity for children to try the basics of the sport at home.
