Lawn Bowls

Any guide to equipment for lawn bowls would not be complete without the stars of the show themselves. When you shop at Jack and Bowl you have two options: new and second-hand. All of our bowls come in various sizes, weights, and colours, so you are sure to find one that takes your fancy. Second hand bowls can be a more affordable option if you’re just starting out. There’s no right or wrong option, just whatever suits you and your budget.

Bowls Clothing

Comfortable lawn bowl clothing is crucial when playing bowls. Lightweight, breathable fabrics will keep you cool on the green, and will also allow for ease of movement. We stock a wide range of tops, and you can also take your pick between trousers or shorts. Which one depends entirely on your preference—and the Great British weather of course!

Bowls Footwear

Flat-soled shoes are mandatory for lawn bowls. This is to prevent damage to the surface. Avoid wearing street shoes or those with tread patterns, as these could leave marks on the grass. Instead, opt for lawn bowling shoes that have been designed specifically for indoor and outdoor use. They provide excellent grip and support, helping you to maintain your balance as you play.

Several accessories can make a world of difference to your game. For instance, a good-quality mat will help you to correctly place your feet during a game. Similarly, jacks are required for every game, and having spares ensures you never miss a match due to lost or damaged ones. Other useful accessories include scoreboards, measures, chalk markers, and glove liners for added comfort and protection. Don’t forget a hat either!
