In this clip we'll try to explain a little bit about etiquette. It's a social game. It's a gentleman's game. We shake hands before and after our games. We try not to deride our opponents.

The tournament sector of lawn bowling is quite different. The United States is divided into eight sections; Sun City being a member of the southeast division. They play by the rule book. They play to kill. They play to win the games. Are excellent bowlers, all of them. They too are courteous.
