Bowls is a game said to be as old as time.

Rounded stones were found in Egyptian tombs dating from 5,000BC, around the same time the wheel was invented, with experts believing this to be an early form of the pastime.

In England, the oldest lawn bowls site is in Southampton, which was established in 1299.

The most famous story about lawn bowls involves Sir Francis Drake and the Spanish Armada. Upon sighting of the massive fleet, on July 19, 1588, Drake was swiftly informed, but replied:  'There is plenty of time to win the game and thrash the Spaniards too.'

Fortunately for him, Drake indeed finished the game before the British Navy saw off the Armada.
