Here is a list of well accepted rules and guidelines concernig the rules of etiquette for new bowlers, and experienced bowlers who often violate these common rules. 

The Etiquette of the game of Lawn Bowls is a combination of good manners, sportsmanship and sociability






Bowls Coaching
Stand out of the line of vision of the person on the mat and be sure that your shadow does not fall  across the aiming line. 

The Leads are responsible to return the mat and the jack to the club house.

It is courtesy to stand still at the head when the player is about to bowl. Movement at the head or  talking  at the mat end  is very distracting.

Walk as close to the centre of the rink as possible when changing ends so that you will not distract  the players on the other rink

When playing Singles, whether you have won or lost, be sure to thank the Marker and offer Him/Her a  drink.

Respect the Laws of the game, Be careful of your demeanour and be polite to your opponents.

Respect instructions given to you by your Skip and the decision of the Umpire.

Respect the Green surface. Take care to protect and conserve it at all times.

Other circumstances may include buying your opponent a drink after the game and remaining in the club house until the trophies have been presented.

These Courtesies are best described as the unwritten laws of the game. They are designed to promote sociability and friendship. They are the extras that    give our game its great charm and its excellent reputation  for friendliness and sportsmanship
