Ditch Measurements

The following is taken from the World Bowls Council - Laws Of Sport Of Bowls.

THE DITCH
(i) The green shall be surrounded by a ditch, which shall have a holding surface that is free from obstacles and is not injurious to jack or bowls.
(ii) The ditch shall not be less than 200mm nor more than 350mm wide and shall be not less than 50mm nor more than 200mm deep.

Most greens I have visited have been about 250mm wide. Hope this helps.
