Who plays first is decided by tossing a coin. The winner then places down the mat and rolls up the jack.To be in play the jack must travel 23 meters or more between markers.It is then moved to the centre of the rink. A point is scored by each bowl that is closer to the jack than the opponent’s closest bowl. The ends are then changed and the game starts at the opposite end. Bowls that run into the ditch are out of play unless they touch the jack on the way in and then the bowl is still in play. If the jack is hit into the ditch and still within the bounder-es then it is still in play. If the jack is knocked out of bound on either side then it is a dead end and no points are award.
