Lawn Bowling…Come Try It!

The Westend Seniors Activity Centre is very excited to be partnering with the Commonwealth Lawn Bowling Club to introduce our members to the game of Lawn Bowling!

WHAT IS LAWN BOWLING…
Lawn bowls is played on a level green with a weighted or biased ball. The object of the game is to have one’s bowl come closest to the ‘goal ball’ or jack. The game is played singly or in teams, and friendly, casual tournament play is common. Played in the spirit of friendly competition, lawn bowling takes equal parts skill, strategy, luck, and laughter. Experienced players go out of their way to make new bowlers feel welcome with encouragement and friendly advice.

DID YOU KNOW…
The club proudly hosted the 1978 Commonwealth bowls tournament and was honoured to have Queen Elizabeth observe the international tournament. The queen’s viewing balcony is still part of their building!
