Bowls is the simplest of all ball games. If you can roll a ball, you can play bowls. The ball itself is the only artifice… after that, it’s all hand and eye. Roll the ball in the right direction and at the right speed every time and you’ll win every game you play.
The video is from the 2020 World Indoor Bowls Tournament held at Potters Resort (Hopton-on-Sea) in England. The bowlers are members of the Professional Bowls Association. The tournament is open to PBA members from around the world and runs for 3 weeks in January.
What Does Lawn Bowls Involve?
Lawn bowls is a game of concentration, precision and accuracy and involves rolling biased or irregular balls as close as possible to a white ball called the Jack. It has been a popular sport in the UK for centuries and there are thousands of bowls clubs up and down the country. As the sport does not involve periods of prolonged and intense activity, it can be played by pretty much anyone. The game is either taken up as a social activity – strictly for leisure – or it can also be played at competition level, for those who want to give themselves more of a challenge.
Here are some of the benefits:
Fitness: Lawn bowls helps moderately improve muscle strength (arm, shoulder, leg muscles), flexibility and endurance.
Mental Health: “The game gets you out into the fresh air and helps alleviate depression and anxiety.
Increases Skills: Bowls involves some element of problem solving skills and also helps improve co-ordination and concentration

Self-Discipline: Sports such as lawn bowls involves turning up on time and being organized.
