Bowls

BACKGROUND

Maccabi SA has had a successful history at the Maccabiah with many teams and individuals winning medals, starting at the 1953 Games and at every Maccabiah since. In recent years Team SA has won gold at the 2001, 2005 and 2013 Games.

CURRENT

Lawn bowls in general has unfortunately seen a drop in participation – at one stage 25% of all bowlers in South Africa were Jewish. However, Maccabi SA Bowls has undergone a revival under the enthusiastic leadership of Raymond Leibman who successfully hosted the first National Bowls Tournament in 18 years at Killarney Country Club in Johannesburg in 2014.
