Lawn Bowls

As Lawn Bowls will be played in the Commonwealth Games, we have a new collection of colouring and printable activities for the kids.

Lawn bowls dates back to the late 13th Century, and the first bowling green, dating from 1299, is still in existence in Southampton! A small bowl is thrown and then everyone tries to throw a number of larger bowls as close as possible to it. Lawn bowls is traditionally played on a large rectangle of carefully maintained grass, or artificial grass. Many villages and towns throughout the UK have a bowling green, often near the tennis club!
