Bowls, or lawn bowling as it is known in the U.S., is a wonderful sport that people of all ages can participate in. The sport of bowls offers numerous benefits to its participants and host cities. For instance, bowls is one of the few sports that people of almost any age can participate in, it is healthy, both relaxing and competitive, inexpensive, disability friendly, and creates and preserves green space. What is more, the sport of bowls is becoming more and more popular in America, the U.S. national team is evermore competitive on the international stage, and bowls may soon become an Olympic sport! Yet many cities in the U.S. don't even know the sport of bowls exists, which has hindered the sports advancement and deprived the public of this wonderful activity. The Southwest Lawn Bowling Association in conjunction with Bowls USA has prepared a comprehensive package to begin approaching cities to educate them on the benefits of lawn bowling with the hope that more municipalities will begin investing in lawn bowling greens for their communities.
