No laws governing a sport can cope with every situation,
and the laws governing the sport of bowls are no exception.
Unusual situations not covered within the laws can often
arise. The Laws of the Sport of Bowls (‘the laws’) have been
drawn up in the spirit of true sportsmanship. So, if a situation
arises that is not covered by these laws, players, markers and
umpires should use their common sense and a spirit of fair play
to decide on the appropriate course of action.
