Try your hand at lawn bowling this Saturday

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.

  1. I’ve been hearing a lot about Bowls lately. Can’t wait to give it a try! Count me in!

  2. My husband and I have been bowling the past 3 or 4 years at JPLBC (hidden behind the golf clubhouse and driving range). This club in particular is made up of a really fun, friendly and eclectic group of people mostly ranging in age from 30-70. This is NOT your grandparent’s lawn bowling league. I highly recommend the curious give it a try.
