To enable and empower sportsmen with disabilities to excel in lawn bowls; to engage the disabled and its larger community to participate and enjoy the sport
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.
