Have you ever thought of starting the wonderful game of Bowls, but had no clue where to start?
Bowling can provide many health benefits which include; improved fitness, coordination and skill development along with improved mental wellbeing and, of course, there is the social benefit of feeling part of a community. Here we have outlined just a few of the health benefits of playing lawn bowls:
As you walk with the extra weight of a bowling ball in your hands, you flex and stretch muscles. This helps to improve flexibility, mobility and core strength.
Reduces the risk of contracting some diseases:
It is well known that having a sedentary lifestyle is one of the main factors that can lead to a heart problem. Lawn bowling can reduce the risk of contracting a heart attack or a stroke, as it helps your body to utilise oxygen better and contributes to good blood circulation and blood pressure.
Coordination and precision:
Playing lawn bowls requires precision, as the main objective is to get as many of your bowls as close as possible to the ‘jack’. Therefore, this activity involves concentration and enhancement of hand and eye coordination.
Lawn bowling can help your mental health as it contributes to reduce stress and improve your mood. Exercise makes you release endorphins, which trigger a positive feeling in your body, making you feel good about yourself.
The simplicity of the game and the low-impact exercise it involves makes it attractive for many people to play. Friends and family can play together as it can be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of age, gender or physical condition.
