Crown green bowls is a variant of lawn bowls. It is played on a lawn from 30 to 60 yards (27 to 55 m) square. The centre of the lawn is 8 to 18 inches (200 to 450 mm) higher than its edges

One of the great things about this game is that it played by a vast range of people, both men and women, from the age of 9 to 90 (and sometimes even older).

Crown Green Bowls is a well organised sport arranged on a county basis. Individual clubs, often affiliated to pubs, form teams that compete in midweek leagues that are grassroots of the sport.

All the family can play Crown Green Bowls, from grandchildren to grandparents and it is a great sport for making new friends. It is a non-contact sport which is enjoyed by all, including people with disabilities.

Crown Green Bowls is an outside sport, similar to the more common Lawn Bowls. The playing area (known as a Green) is an area of very short grass (approx 25m square) with a slight convex shape (i.e. a hump) which leads to the name Crown. Crown Green Bowls is played in the North of England, the Midlands, Wales and at a few other venues around the world.

Play is almost always singles and each player bowls just two bowls each end. The winner of each turn can play the jack in any direction and at any reasonable distance within the lawn boundary which is a ditch. Some players are best at bowling across the hump, others along the sloping side, some prefer short distances, others long and so many additional tactical complexities are introduced by the unusual lawn.
