Last Saturday I played lawn bowls, yes really, I figured hey I am a Nanna I can do this!
Actually I was roped into playing by friends at work, we have put two teams in to the Saturday challenge as a lead up to the Corporate challenge on Wednesday nights in a couple of months.
Let me tell you lawn bowls is NOT for the feint hearted. My newly acquired hat comes of to the ladies and men in white. All that leaning and stretching, my poor knees may never be the same.
I had to stretch and radox and even then it took two days until I felt I could bend my legs. I was amazed at the complaining muscles that emerged after our three hour game.
Bowls is definitely not a game for those lacking in eye/hand co-ordination as I discovered, it leads to your team getting absolutely whipped at 66-9, and the club ringing to promise your team a ten point start for the next Saturday.....................oh the humiliation.............
