Delhi 2010 Lawn Bowls - Scotland
 

The setting may be tranquil, but don’t be fooled – this is Lawn Bowls and the stakes are high.

Bowlers mix precision with boldness and they play with a focus that soon rubs off on the spectators.

Lawn Bowls is strongly represented throughout the Commonwealth, and Glasgow 2014 will feature a number of current World Champions. This sport also offers the most diverse group of competing athletes, from all age groups and backgrounds.

Athletes will compete for eight Gold medals across the men’s and women’s singles, pairs, triples and fours, beginning with a round robin format before knockout finals determine the medal winners.

Integrated into the lawn bowls programme will be two Para-Sport events for bowlers who are visually impaired or have a physical disability.

Set in one of Glasgow’s most famous parks, the Lawn Bowls competition will take place at the picturesque Kelvingrove Lawn Bowls Centre, adjacent to the renowned Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.

Venue: Kelvingrove Lawn Bowls Centre [West End]

Watch out for: Lawn Bowls has perhaps one of the most evenly spread medal tallies of the Games, with nations including Australia, England, New Zealand, Scotland, South Africa, Malaysia and Wales sharing the spoils. With a raft of young athletes joining the sport throughout the Commonwealth, there may be some surprising results come 2014.
