Jamaica Lawn Bowling Association partners with JHF to promote sport
THE Jamaica Lawn Bowling Association has partnered with the Jamaica hockey Federation to promote the sport of lawn bowls in Jamaica.
While there has been much international acclaim based on the nation’s historic involvement in the Commonwealth Games, the governing body locally is looking to grow the sport. This is one of many initiatives and partnerships that will be announced in the following months.
The Jamaica Lawn Bowling Association is inviting all individuals interested in the sport of lawn bowls to come out to the Mona Hockey Field today. The event begins at 9:00 am. Lawn bowls is a sport in which the objective is to roll biased balls called woods so that they stop close to a smaller ball called a “jack” or “kitty”. It is played on a bowling green which may be flat, convex or uneven. It is normally played outdoors (although there are many indoor venues) and the outdoor surface is either natural grass, artificial turf, or cotula (in New Zealand).
