WHAT IS BOWLS?
Bowls is a universal sport which is suitable for people of all ages and a range of abilities. The basic objective of the game is to roll or ‘bowl’ a ball, with the intention of it coming to a standstill as close as possible to the ‘jack’ or ‘kitty’ – a smaller, usually white, ball.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF BOWLS
Bowls is a great way to improve and maintain the body’s flexibility and is considered a great way to relieve stress and promote relaxation. The club aspect of the sport is also a good way to socialise and build friendships, promoting good mental wellbeing. The physical benefits of regular play also include increased energy and stamina and improved coordination.
COMMON INJURIES ASSOCIATED WITH BOWLS
While there are numerous health benefits to playing this relatively gentle sport, players should bear in mind that injuries can occur while playing any sport. Warming up before participating is always advisable to minimise the risk of muscle and joint strains, as is taking the time to learn correct bowling technique. Sprains, muscle strain from overexertion, trips, falls and fractures are all possibilities to be considered if playing regularly.
