BOWLS – KEEPING YOU HEALTHY

It has been medically proven that Bowls improves your general health and helps to strengthen the immune system. Playing a game of bowls gives your muscles and joints good anaerobic exercise because you are not giving your cardiovascular system a workout.
During an average game, you will:
*Bend more than 40 times
*Walk about 1260 metres
*Swing your arm more than 40 times to deliver a bowl weighing more than 3 lbs.
This gives your muscles and joints good exercise as well as exercising your mind as you try to outwit your opponent!
