Resources and Collection

Bowls image 1Bowls and bowling games can use referees or umpires and are some of the most popular games in the world. Find links to contacts, news, rules and tons of other great information for and about your favourite bowling games. There might be lawn bowls, 10 pins, 9 pins, maybe even 7 and 5 pin games. If candle bowling, table bowling or the Crown Green are what you are interested in, then this is your collection!

Bowling is one of the oldest games that we know of. Bowling balls and pins were found in an Egyptian tomb that is over 5,000 years old. Various forms of lawn bowling games have been played for just as long and with almost as many variations on rules. Alterations to the basic rules are usually made to accommodate the different types of playing surfaces that are available. Some are flat, some are rolling and hilly, and of course, they are all different sizes. One of the fascinating aspects to the sport of bowls and bowling is the diversity of the games.
