Lawn Bowling In Seattle July 28, 2015

Filed under: Lawn bowling,Seattle — Janet @ 8:30 pm

In the Seattle Times on Sunday there was an article on lawn bowling.  Surprise.  Oh for the glory days of lawn bowling in Kenya and Dublin when we were members of Karen and Leinster and Kenilworth Bowling Clubs.  It was interesting to read the article but it just made me sad.  It’s not a high priority sport here – not a tradition, not part of the culture.  Just a quirk really to find it played at all – to quote the header for the article – “Lawn bowling isn’t a hard-core workout, just a lot of fun.”

But Victoria isn’t far away where the British tradition of lawn bowling is alive and well – as it is in the British Isles and the Commonwealth countries
