Bowls

Bowls or lawn bowls is a sport in which the objective is to roll biased balls so that they stop close to a smaller ball called a "jack" or "kitty". It is played on a pitch which may be flat (for "flat-green bowls") or convex or uneven (for "crown green bowls").  Most bowling clubs have a mixed team, separate ladies and men’s teams, over 60’s Ladies’ and Men’s team.
