Bowls is a growing sport and one place where you can play this game is in Alicante Province in Spain. You will not only get to experience this sport but at the same time enjoy one of the best places to be in Spain. Alicante province (named after its capital city, Alicante) is the south most province in the Valencia Community and is located in south-east Spain. The entire province is bordered southward by the Mediterranean Sea.
Due to its location the place has mild year round weather and there is relatively little rainfall. This is just the kind of weather where you can have a good game of bowls.
For those not too familiar with bowls, it’s a game where you have a somewhat asymmetric ball (bowls) which you try to roll as close as possible to a smaller white ball called a “jack”. This game can be played outdoors or indoors on grass or on synthetic surface. It’s typically called lawn bowl. The origin of this game is traced to England and at one period was actually banned due to its popularity which might distract men from practicing other combat skills.
In Alicante, bowling stretches across the entire province and not just confined to one particular area. To the north of Alicante (city) is El Cid Bowling Club in Benidoleig this is near Javea.
