Lawn bowling is generally played on a square grass court with an outer length of 31 to 40 meters. The outer perimeter of the court is surrounded by trenches and embankments, and is divided into competition lanes of the same area. Each lane is marked with markers to show its division. Boundary and center lines. The court surface must be perfectly flat and the grass must be carefully cut so as not to interfere with the progress of the bowl.

Participating players must take turns standing on the ground and rolling the ball from one end of the lane to the other end, with the goal of getting as close as possible to a target object called the "target ball." A lawn bowl is not a perfect sphere, so its rolling path is not a straight line, but an arced path.

As mentioned above, the purpose of the lawn bowls game is to make your team's team have more rolling balls that are closer to the target ball than the opponent's balls. In each game, when all players take turns to deliver all the rolling balls, the players from both sides will determine the score of the game. Only the team closer to the target ball will score, and each rolling ball closer to the target ball than the opponent's ball will be scored. The ball will score one point. After the score is decided, another game will be played on the same spot in the opposite direction, and so on.

The control of lawn bowls mainly lies in the strength and arc of the serve, and the serving method can be divided into forehand and backhand.

Lawn bowls events are divided into singles, doubles, threes and fours. The game modes are:

  • Singles match: Each team takes turns sending out four rolling balls. The first player to score 21 points wins.
  • Pairs match: Two teams with two players each compete against each other. Each team takes turns sending out four rolling balls. The team with the highest score after completing 18 rounds wins.
  • Three-person match: Two teams with three players each compete against each other. Each team takes turns sending out three rolling balls. The team with the highest score after completing 18 rounds wins.
  • Four-player match: Two teams with four players each compete against each other. Each team takes turns sending out two rolling balls. The team with the highest score after completing 18 rounds wins.

Although these are the more common competition methods, event organizers may also allow other competition modes, such as mixed competitions.

Taking the four-man game as an example, each position player has different responsibilities:

  • The lead golfer (or first player): places the mat, delivers and centers the target ball, and then releases the rolling ball as close to the target ball as possible.
  • Second player (or second player): The serve improves or consolidates the game created by the lead player.
  • Third golfer: The third golfer must use different serving techniques when necessary to win, protect the game, or deploy strategic positions. In addition, the third golfer must also suggest strategies to the main golfer and agree with the opponent on the scoring of each ball. If necessary, he must also measure and determine the scoring ball.
  • The cue ball player: The cue ball player is responsible for managing the team and guiding teammates' serving tactics, and creating advantages for the team at important moments. The bowler is also responsible for recording the scorecard and updating the scoreboard
