Tips to help you get started

  1. On each green there are what we call “rinks”, similar to an alley in ten pin bowling. These rinks are separated by a boundary peg.
  2. The aim of the game is to get your bowls closer than your opponent to what we call the “Jack” (small white ball).
  3. Each player can play up to four bowls each depending on how many players for each team.
  4. The bowls are made in different sizes which allows people with small hands to large hands to play.

Each bowl has what we call a bias (weighted to one side).

This allows the bowl to curve in on an angle.

So, the idea is to step out off a bowls mat on your rink and roll the bowl out on an angle and allow the bowl to head in the direction of the jack. The person who is closest to the jack scores a shot for that end.
