Lawn bowling or “bowls” is a game originating in the 13th century, distantly related to bocce, providing competition and a test of skill for everyone from teens to seniors.
This Saturday, the Jefferson Park Lawn Bowling Club and numerous other clubs across the country are having open houses and inviting people to come learn more about the game. An introductory lesson is free — bring friends! (And to keep the playing surface in good repair, please remember to wear flat-soled shoes.)
Stop in and give it a shot this Saturday, May 8, from noon to 4:00 pm at the Jefferson Park Lawn Bowling Club, 4103 Beacon Ave S, just west of the driving range.
Thanks to Nita Chambers from the club for the photos and notice.
