Bowls .

Anyone ever played this game ?

I know a few lads (yes lads not pensioners) that play it and they are trying to get me invloved. Is it any good ? It looks easy enough . Just after some advice.

Cheers Dudes and Dudettes.

Crown Green or Flat?
Never played it myself but always fancied having a try, I like most aiming games
Bowls is harder because its on the bias.
Cant stand watching it on the tv though.

Dont know if David Bryant is still knocking about, I did used to like watching him.
He was the Phil Taylor of bowls sometime back

When i was in school one of my classmates played it. I met him one evening in the leisure centre were he was playing a tournament. It was indoor, I can`t remember the distance but i do remember a stick in the middle of the green mat thingy. I played a few games when the tournament was over and i found it challenging but enjoyable. I like watching bowls on the telly too. It`s worth at least trying i would say.
