Highlights about the game of lawn ball
Lawn ball is like golf in a way. Because there too the ball has to reach a target and there is something similar in this game as well. Although there are many differences between the two, the biggest difference is that in golf, the stick is used, whereas in lawn ball, the ball has to be sent forward by hand. Well let’s know about this game. Actually, in this game, the ball is also called the jack i.e. the target. The ball has to be sent while rolling on the ground by aiming towards this jack itself. Both the teams playing in this have to follow the same procedure and send their ball as close to the jack as possible. The one whose balls are closest to the jack is the winner on the basis of points.
