Would you like to know the origins behind the games of Bowls? Historians believe that the game of Bowls originates from the Egyptians. Historians know that they used to play skittles with round stones thanks to artifacts that have been found in tombs dating circa 5,000 B.C.
Other countries adapted their idea and soon the sport had spread across the world in various different forms. In Italy they played Bocce, in Denmark they played Bolle and in France they played Boules. There were many other countries with many other names for what was pretty much the same game.
When King Henry VIII took the throne he banned the game of Bowls (or Boules as it was also known) for those who did not have high status and were not wealthy. However in 1845 the ban was lifted so that people could choose to play Bowls again. Since then people of all ages and walks of life have enjoyed this classic garden game of lawn Bowls and Boules.
