What is Bowls?

Bowls or lawn bowls is a fun team and individual sport in which the objective is to roll a 'biased' bowl so that it stops close to a smaller ball called a "jack" or "kitty". It is played on a bowling green which may be natural or synthetic.  A sport that can be played as competitively or socially as one wishes, it's a great sport for both young and old, physically active and those with limited mobility.
