Bowls or lawn bowls is normally played outdoors on natural grass, but it can also be played on artificial turf, or cotula (in New Zealand). This is a sport where biased balls are rolled to stop very near a smaller ball, "jack" or "kitty". The pitch, on which it’s played, may be flat, convex or uneven.

 

History

Bowling has been mentioned in a 12th century biography of Thomas Beckett under the name jactuslapidum, The royal library at Windsor has a manuscript with a drawing showing two players aiming at a small cone. Southampton Old Bowling Green is supposed to be the world's oldest existing Bowling Green and believed to have been first used in 1299.

 

The game eventually lost its credibility and faced bans and restrictions in the ensuing centuries. But by the 1800s, the game earned back its respectability. Now, more than 40 countries play this sport, and it’s official home as a modern sport is still Edinburgh.

 

Olympics

Bowling came into the Olympic list in 1930, and has been contested in all the games except in the 1966 Games.
