Bowls England is the National Governing Body (NGB) for the sport of Flat Green Lawn Bowls in England.

The object of the game is to throw, roll or push a spherical ball called a bowl, so that it comes to rest as close as possible to the small target ball at the other end of the mat called a jack.

Bowls is mostly played outdoors on a closely trimmed lawn called a green but there are many different formats of the game. These include: flat green outdoor, flat green indoor, crown green and short mat bowls. Bowls is a sport for all and can be played by anyone no matter their age, sex or ability.
