About This Activity

Description

This activity is closed to further registration.

This game has been played for well over 100 years, and for good reason, it?s a blast! Join us in beautiful Washington Park for a game of Lawn Bowling. No experience, partners or equipment is necessary. Beginners and spectators are welcome! We provide it all! The event will begin with an overview and lesson on how to play the game then we will move into a round robin format of play. Prize awarded to the winner. Light refreshments are also provided.



If you are an experienced bocce ball player then this is the next level of play for you! Lawn Bowling is great for beginners and can also be challenging for advanced players due to the bias. Lawn Bowling utilizes a bias, which is similar to having a lopsided weight inside the ball that causes the ball to veer off into a particular direction. This bias is what helps to make the game challenging.
