After spending many hours contemplating ,I decided to take the plunge and bought the Drakes . I have now played a couple of times with them and can honestly say they are real pleasure to play, great bowl and would highly recommend. The bowls are well worth investing in .Thanks to Bowls .co.uk for making them affordable , and the quick delivery

Love these bowls but the service was excellent, even got a phone call to advise of delivery
Super customer service re embroidery query and attractive finished design. Thank you for making my new bowler dad smile 😊
The shirt is an extremely beautiful colour and I particularly like the lovely detailing on the embroidered motif.
The colour contrast on the personalisation is wonderful and I am extremely pleased with my purchase. I would definitely buy again and have no hesitation in recommending this to others.
The Jack is a great colour. The weight and shape has a good feel and it plays true!
Can't praise the service I received from bowls.co.uk highly enough. Bought online which was really easy. Order processed really quickly. Dispatched in a couple of days. Gave me tracking info so I knew where it was and when it was going to be delivered. When the parcel arrived, packaging was excellent. Bowls were as described and in perfect condition. Would definitely recommend this company to anyone thinking of buying a new set for themselves. In fact, I have done so already to a few bowlers at my club 🙂
Good value, good price, quick delivery,
These bowls have a superb feel and weight. The smaller size because of the high density makes the fit perfect for my hand. I just know I’m going to love using these bowls! Glad I purchased them.

Why play bowls?
Like most games, bowls offers the opportunity for players to perform the best of their potential, and provides a source of great enjoyment for each player.
It appears to be a game that can be played in a calm and quiet way, where there does not seem to be too great a physical demand made upon any participant. It seems to be measured and methodical, deliberate and disciplined, as befits a game of great skill.
But this description can be misleading because, in the heat of competitive play, players will demonstrate a wide range of emotions. The game can provide moments of great joy or deep disappointment, euphoria or despair.
Bowls demands concentration and control, courage and caution, decisiveness and a delicacy of touch. It requests true sportsmanship and an honest appreciation of an opponent’s skill, without losing belief in oneself and the determination to win. It needs strict mental application with a tight control over any negative thoughts, and the physical and emotional strength to with withstand the pressure of a 3 to 4 hour game. It demands compatibility among players as well as trust and confidence in others’ directions and decisions. Finally, it requires total involvement.
It provides comradeship, friendship and a better understanding and acceptance of others. It can teach players to lose well and win well, and to be genuine in their congratulations, regardless of whether a winner or a loser. It can offer contact over a wide age range and promote a greater acceptance of individuals of different age groups. It can offer gentle relaxation or the excitement of intense rivalry.
Of course, other sports could lay claim to such advantages, but bowls has its own particular rewards, from the enjoyment of playing as an individual to the team involvement of the rink. It is recognised as one of the fastest-growing games in Britain, and perhaps that fact is the best advertisement for what the game has to offer.
