The joys of lawn bowls: a gentle pursuit with celebrity appeal

Lawn bowls, with its leisurely pace and strategic finesse, has long been a beloved pastime for people of all ages. Whether you’re a seasoned bowler or a curious newcomer, the greens offer a serene escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life. At Taylor Bowls, we celebrate this timeless sport and invite you to explore its joys.

The art of precision
Lawn bowls is more than just rolling weighted balls across a meticulously manicured lawn. It’s an art form that demands precision, concentration and camaraderie. As the sun bathes the greens in a warm glow, players engage in friendly banter, strategise their shots and share in the thrill of a well-executed delivery. The gentle arc of the bowl as it curves toward the jack – a moment suspended in time – is pure magic.

Celebrities on the greens
Lawn bowls has a star-studded following. Celebrities from various walks of life find solace and challenge on the greens. Here are a few notable names who have embraced this delightful game:
