SPOKANE, Wash. – Have you heard of lawn bowling? It is a sport that has existed in Spokane since 1913 and continues to grow to this day.
The sport has origins that can be traced back to Europe, particularly the UK, but you can learn how it’s played through the Spokane Lawn Bowling Club.
The Spokane Lawn Bowling Club has been active in Spokane for decades and wants to introduce people to the sport.
Lawn bowling is an outdoor game in which you roll a ball towards a smaller stationary ball, called a jack.
The first lawn bowling green in Spokane was at Manito Park. Now it’s behind the Witter Aquatic Center.
The club offers free lessons in May, June and July.
You can come to 1300 E Mission Ave. Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7 p.m.
For more information on the sport and to get in touch with the club, follow their Facebook page.
