How to Play
To play, the jack is rolled onto the rink and must travel at least halfway across the rink. Players then take turns trying to roll their bowls as close to the jack as possible. Points are awarded at the end of each round to the team whose bowl (or bowls) is closest to the jack. Players alternate the direction of play after each round. The first team to reach 21 points is the winner.
Some rules to remember:
- Only flat-soled shoes, socks, or bare feet are allowed on the green.
- Only the active bowler is allowed on the green.
- The jack and bowls must be rolled, never tossed or dropped. Don’t be a tosser!
- It’s fun (and permissible) to strike the other players’ bowls with your own to gain a strategic advantage!
Lawn bowling rinks are available for rent on an hourly basis, May through October. Single rink rentals can be reserved up to seven days in advance. Groups may reserve single rinks, half green, or full green for private events.
Rink rentals start at $30/hour ($25 for Golden Valley Residents).
