Bowls is played on a square of closely cut grass called 'the green', which is divided into playing areas called rinks. The green is surrounded by a small ditch to catch bowls which leave the green, and a bank upon which markers indicate the corners and centrelines of each rink.
Players take turns to deliver their bowls from one end of the rink towards a small white ball, often referred to as 'the jack' at the other end. The object is to get one or more of your bowls closer to the jack than those of your opponents on each end - one point is scored for each counting bowl.
The Woodcock Bowls club was established in 1953 and open seven days a week in the summer.
