About Bowls

Archaeological findings suggest a sport that was played with biased stone balls as far back 7000 years ago.

A variation of this sport, named bocce, was played in Rome during the reign of Julius Caesar. The oldest surviving bowling club dates back to 1299 and is located in Southampton (UK).
