Proper Attire for Lawn Bowling
November 15, 2008 by lawn bowls
Lawn bowling is considered to be a proper sport, especially when it’s played in competition and as such, there is a proper dress code that is required. Generally, if one remembers to wear all white or all cream, this will be appropriate but there are some specifics you may want to take into consideration.
Men and women both must wear white or cream slacks and a white or cream shirt. Shorts are permitted but if they are not an appropriate length, white or cream knee-socks must also be worn. Cardigans, jackets, and pullovers may be worn however, these too must also be white or cream-colored. Men can wear a hat if they so choose, as long as it’s white or cream in color and ladies are required to wear a white or cream-colored hat. Both men and women must wear white or cream-colored shoes with a rubber, non-skidding sole.
This dress code is generally only set in place during formal competition and of course, if you’re having a quick game in the yard with the kids or setting up the course during a family BBQ, feel free to play as you are!
