History of the English Bowls – 1190 AD
I thought Green Bowl is popular in the world and was invented by us in English, I I thought I would tell her story. One of the most famous stories about Bols was July 19, 1588 Capt. Thomas Fleming Golden Hinde, a vision of the Navy in the morning mist swirl of lizard and ran to Plymouth, home to Lord Howard. Fleming came to Plymouth canal with the tide in the afternoon to find Sir Francis Drake bowling with his officers in the city of Ho, well above the port. In the audience watching Drake Fleming insisted on continuing with the game
Bowls is a sport whose goal is to roll slightly asymmetrical balls, called bowls, to stop near a small bowl, white and normally called "objective" or "cat." Balls, and off-plan and green ring is generally plays in lawns and synthetic. flat green bowls can also be played indoors on synthetic surfaces. Both variants are collectively known as "containers."
It is the most popular in Australia, New Zealand (where the playing surface is natural Cotula) the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth countries.
It was probably made in the 13 century and 12 century conjectural Fitzstephen William (d. about 1190 AD). In his biography, Thomas Becket, gives a graphic outline the London of his time writing of summer fun for young people, said that day that "went further, shooting, wrestling, Stone-throwing [in jactu lapidum], and throwing darts equipped with loops for this purpose, before trying to launch the brand, which is also used shields, as men of war. "
It is assumed by jactus lapidum, Fitzstephen meant the ball game, but it is possible that round stones have sometimes been used in an early variety the game – and there is no record of the iron bowls used but in a much later date, holidays in Nairn – however, the conclusion seems unwarranted. The lapidum jactus you're talking about is probably closer to the modern "putting the weight," once even called "putting the first stone." It is undisputed however, the game, at least in rudimentary form, was played in the 13 century. A manuscript of this period in the Royal Library, Windsor (No. 20, IV e) contains a drawing of two players to a small cone instead of a ball of clay or gray. The world's oldest surviving bowling Southampton Old Bowling Green, who was the first used in 1299 AD.
Another manuscript of the century, has an image of raw, but the spirit that connects us with the existing game. Three characters are introduced and an outlet. The first player to bowl stopped right in front of the exit, the second gave him his drink and then one of those eccentric contortions still not unusual in modern greens, the first player meanwhile making a repressive gesture with his hand to urge the bowl to stop before the third player is represented as in the act delivery of its crown.
As the game grew in popularity, came in under the ban of king and parliament, both fearing that could jeopardize the practice of archery, then so important in the battle. The laws forbid it and other sports were adopted during the reign of King Edward III, King Richard II and other monarchs. Even if the invention of gunpowder and firearms, the bow had fallen into disuse as a weapon of war, the ban has been upheld. The disrepute for the lanes, first established in London in 1455, probably encouraged subsequent repressive legislation, for the most the alleys were connected with taverns frequented by the dissolute and gamblers. The word "bowls" occurs for the first time in the law of 1511 in which Henry VIII confirmed previous laws against illegal gambling. In another act of 1541 – which was not repealed until 1845 – craftsmen, laborers, apprentices, servants and others were banned from playing the pitch at any time, except for Christmas and only in the house of his teacher and his presence. It was further noted that during playback of a dish outside your own garden or orchard was liable to a penalty of 6s. 8d., While those who had Earth to the annual value of £ 100 might obtain licenses to play on his private green.
Bowls is popular in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, Hong Kong and parts of the United States. It is also gaining ground in Japan.
Because of its competitiveness, skills and the fact that it is a non-contact sport, play combinations of people from adolescence through his years nineties. However, there is a strong competition with many younger professional men and women to play.
Since the 1990's, the sport has well developed in Denmark. The World Championships are held every year in the UK and £ 100 000 competition is seen by three million viewers on BBC TV.
Today the sport is practiced in over 40 countries with more than 50 members of the national authorities.

The Chinese call the British "hero of the island," which I think sums up all over Colombia. The British are curious and competitive and are always looking at the horizon of the next adventure and discovery.
