  • BOWLS
    No longer considered a game for the ‘oldies’, barefoot bowls is a great way to relax, enjoy the company of friends and an opportunity to make new ones.  Barefoot bowls requires no brilliant sporting prowess or superior motor skills and encompasses all levels of ability.  All you need is a desire to have a go and have some fun.

    Please note although children are permitted at the club, children under the age of 12 years old are not permitted on the green or to bowl. Children are to be supervised at all times for the benefit of your child. Bowling balls are heavy and can be dangerous when in the wrong hands

    Days

    The basics for Barefoot bowls

    The larger black ball is a bowl. The small white ball is the jack. The aim of the game is to get your bowl as close to the jack as possible.  The team which has the bowl the closest wins the end and gets 1 point/closest bowl.

    Bowls are weighted so that they don’t roll in a straight line, but in a curve. Each bowl has a small and large icon on each side. Always keep the small icon on the inside of your delivery.

    You will play on a green (of very short grass) which is divided into 7 rinks (lanes).  You bowl from alternate ends, usually standing on a mat.
