Lawn bowls refers to somewhat of an outdoor bowling sport, where instead of using a bowling alley, you play the sport outdoors on a flat, grassy area that works as your outdoor bowling lane. The bowls themselves are similar to that of a bowling ball, but are smaller and shape and designed a bit differently to coincide with the surface they will be rolling across. Just with any other piece of sports equipment, the lawn bowls need to be cleaned regularly.
