Bowls

Bowls, or Lawn Bowls, is hugely popular in Jersey, with no fewer than five outdoor clubs based across the Island.

It is a game for all the family and is one of the few games at which men and women of all ages can play on equal terms. Thought to have originated in the 12th or 13th Century, bowls is now an international sport and Island players are encouraged to enter tournaments in a variety of countries — where fantastic results are often achieved.

Games can be decided when a player reaches a specified number of shots (usually in singles), or when a team has the highest score following a specified number of ‘ends’.

Jersey’s ladies pairs finished fourth at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, missing out on a bronze medal in the final end.
