Bowls truly is the sport for all regardless of age, sex or ability – and is a game that takes just seconds to learn and the rest of your bowling career to master.

There are four different formats of the game recognised in Oxfordshire – flat green outdoor, flat green indoor, crown green and short mat – so there are plenty of opportunities for you to give it a go.

Bowls is also a relatively cheap game compared to other sports, whether you choose to join an indoor or outdoor club, or 'pay and play' at your local park.

The sport has four National Governing Bodies, recognised by Sport England, that are working together to develop the sport through the Bowls Development Alliance; Bowls England, British Crown Green Bowls Association, English Indoor Bowling Association Limited, and English Short Mat Bowls Association
