North Fife Bowling Newburgh

A relaxed afternoon playing of Lawn Bowls being played at Newburgh North Fife. The Green overlooks the river Tay estuary and Mugdrum Island.
Lawn Bowling (or bowls), Perhaps the oldest of all ball games is lawn bowls. It was played in ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome and spread to Europe by the 10th century.
Played on a grass plot, the green; players roll balls (bowls), about 5 in. (13 cm) in diameter, at a smaller ball called the jack.
