So you want to learn how to bowl?

Coaches play a huge part in the sustainability of bowls. An enthusiastic personality, skills and approachable style that coaches have helps players to be welcomed and learn the unique sport of bowls. Check out our lawn bowls training videos as a start to understand the objective of the game, choosing the correct sized bowl to play lawn bowls and then a practice video for beginners.
This is just a guide so please ask your lawn bowls coach should you need more advice.
