Indoor Carpet Bowls – What Does the Game Involve?
Indoor carpet bowls is played in village halls and community centres up and down the country. It is played on a 30 x 6 ft carpet and involves a jack placed 3 – 6 ft from the end of the mat and an 18 inch central block placed equal distance from the carpet ends.
The block must be in a contrasting colour to the carpet and can be either rectangular, round or diamond in shape. This makes the game more skilful and entertaining as it prevents players bowling straight down the middle of the mat. Delivery is from an 18 inch area in-front of the carpet and bowlers should not stand on, kneel or touch the carpet when they play.
