Lawn bowling is a low impact sport suitable for everyone from 14 to 99. All you need is a pair of flat-soled shoes - we provide the rest. The bowls weigh only about 4 pounds, so it isn't a test of strength. Men and women compete as equals.
We bowl on a 120 foot square lawn that is mowed like a golf green. The game is a bit like bocce, a bit like curling, and is called petanque in France.
