At least 5000 years old:

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.
