Game changer: The impact of technology on lawn bowls

In the world of lawn bowls, a sport steeped in tradition and heritage, technology may not be the first thing that comes to mind. However, in recent years, advancements in technology have started to make their mark on the game, bringing a new dimension and enhancing the overall experience for both players and spectators. From precision measuring devices to advanced coaching tools, technology is revolutionising lawn bowls and shaping its future.

Precision and accuracy
Gone are the days when players relied solely on their eyes and instincts to measure distances. With the introduction of laser measuring devices, bowlers can now accurately determine the exact distance between bowls, eliminating any disputes and ensuring fair play. These devices have proven to be invaluable in high-stakes competitions, providing an objective and reliable means of measurement.

Performance analysis
With the help of specialised software and sensors, players can track their delivery speed, line and length, allowing them to identify areas for improvement and refine their technique. Coaches can also use this data to provide personalised feedback and develop tailored training programs, ultimately enhancing players’ skills and performance on the green.

Artificial turf
While natural grass has long been the traditional playing surface for lawn bowls, the introduction of artificial turf has opened new possibilities for the game. Artificial surfaces offer consistent playing conditions, unaffected by weather or seasonal changes. This allows players to focus solely on their skill and strategy, rather than adapting to external factors. Additionally, artificial turf requires less maintenance and is more cost-effective, making the sport more accessible to a wider range of players.

Live streaming and broadcasting
With the advent of live streaming and broadcasting platforms, major tournaments and matches can now be watched in real-time from the comfort of home. This has not only increased the visibility and reach of the sport but has also provided an immersive experience for enthusiasts who may not have had the opportunity to witness the game firsthand. The ability to replay and analyse matches has also proven invaluable for both players and fans, deepening their understanding of the game and enhancing their enjoyment.
