The New York Lawn Bowling Club is marking its 90th anniversary.
The club was founded in 1926 and, in partnership with the Central Park Conservancy, has maintained residence just north of the Sheep Meadow. Players compete by rolling four oblong bowls along a flat grass surface aiming to place their bowl closest to a smaller target called the “jack.”
The club kicked off summer season with an opening-day tournament on May 7th. Everyone is invited to learn more about the pastime every Monday at 5 p.m. in May and June to try their hand at bowling. More information about the club can be found at www.nybowls.com
