Who We Are

Lawn bowls is a popular precision game across the world and suitable for participants of all ages and abilities. The object of lawn bowls is to roll a ball, or bowl, closest to the target ball, a small white/yellow ball called a jack. The bowl's design, slightly flattened on one side, creates the challenge of the game. The shape of the ball causes it to travel a curved path, or bias. A bowler determines the bias direction of the bowl in his hand by a dimple or symbol on one side.

Lawn bowls requires little equipment: a set of matching bowls; a pair of flat, smooth shoes; a jack and a mat. Two teams compete, each with 1-4 players. Usually, lawn bowls takes place outdoors on a green, grass or synthetic surface.

In recent years, the outdoor games have been modified for indoor play with a carpet of 15m x 2m, this "Short Mat Bowls" version is now popular in Community Centres, Schools and Sport Clubs.

Hear From Players At Lawn Bowling

Beneficiary of President's Challenge 2021: Khirmern B Mohamad

Khirmern aged 51,  had an accident that resulted in one of his legs being amputated from his thigh down. That unfortunate incident happened in 2005 and it resulted in the loss of his job. He moved around with clutches and had caused instability in his movements. The double whammies had led to his depression which lasted for a few years. In 2009, with the support of his family, he decided to get on with life and finally found a job. He was also fixed with an artificial leg and after some weeks of rehab sessions, he bounced back into life.
In 2015, he found his love and got married thereafter and was blessed with a son in 2019.
In 2018, he met one of our Executive committee members from the Lawn Bowls Association for the Disabled (Singapore) aka Parabowls who invited him to bowl with us at Kallang Green. After 40 mins of chit-chatting, Khirmern was convinced that he must take up a sport seriously if he were to build himself up physically and to equip himself with life skills emotionally & mentally. This then kick-started his sport journey with our Association and Khirmern came under the tutelage of 2 coaches, namely Bernard & Helen.
Coach Helen spotted his potential and continued to impart the lawn bowls' skills & strategies to her protege. His good attitude combined with his consistent and unrelenting spirit in learning the sport, he became one of our Association's pride.
He sets an exemplary model to the other disabled bowlers by his never-say-die training enthusiasm. He seizes all opportunities to improve himself by participating in as many local competitions as he could.  His main purposes are to hone his lawn bowls skills and benchmark his standard among his competitors. The latest opportunity is that he is permitted to compete with the able-bodied bowlers in the on-going interclubs' competitions. He is still in the race, winning many games.   His ability stood out so much so that he is invited to be trained with the national and able-bodied bowlers. This is a great honor for our Association to be recognised by the able-bodied world.
Our Association strongly believes that Khirmern will continue to soar in the lawn bowls sport, given his grit and courage.
To sum up, his disability does not deter his ability to perform as good or even better than others.
Khirmern indeed befits to be a worthy beneficiary of the President Challenge 2021!
