Includes all variations of lawn bowls including "flat-green bowls" and "crown-green bowls".
Bowls or lawn bowls is a sport in which the objective is to roll biased balls so that they stop close to a smaller ball called a "jack" or "kitty". It is played on a pitch which may be flat (for "flat-green bowls") or convex or uneven (for "crown-green bowls"). It is normally played outdoors (although there are many indoor venues) and the outdoor surface is either natural grass, artificial turf, or cotula (in New Zealand).
How to Map
For indoor bowling you might place this tag on a whole building, or use separate a node or area within the outer building area, to represent the location of the bowls pitch within the building.
Tags to indicate the type of green can also be added, if known
Other useful combination
- sport=boules - Similar game involving stopping near the "jack", but involves throwing the balls.
