Laws Of The Sport

Laws Of The Sport

World Bowls endeavours to ensure the laws of the sport are comprehensive. However no laws governing a sport can cope with every situation, and the laws governing the sport of bowls are no exception. Unusual situations not covered within the laws can often arise. The Laws of the Sport of Bowls (‘the laws’) have been drawn up in the spirit of true sportsmanship. So, if a situation arises that is not covered by these laws, players, markers and umpires should use their common sense and a spirit of fair play to decide on the appropriate course of action.

Please contact your own member nation organisation to obtain a copy of the Laws of the Sport, as they may have domestic regulations appertaining to their specific country.

Or request a copy by contacting the offices of World Bowls to ascertain costs, including postage.
