England Ladies Bowls team play on world’s smallest bowling green in Devon


This is the moment the England Ladies Bowls team squeezed in a little practice – on the world’s SMALLEST playing green.

The 30 women made big strides in their game by taking to a pitch which measures just six feet long and three feet wide.

The English Women’s Indoor Bowling team took to the small green at Babbacombe Model Village near Torquay, Devon.

Simon Wills, of the model village, said the players took turns to use the green during the two hour session.

He said: ”The England team were on tour and had some matches scheduled nearby so they came here to fit in a bit of practice.

”The green here really is tiny so it must have been quite tough. At 18 square foot you certainly don’t have much space for a run-up.”

Team captain Irene Godfrey added: ”It’s certainly the most challenging green we’ve ever played on.”
