Barefoot Bowls

Tuesday, 18 January 2011


Drink, Laugh, Bowl...................

Get your feet on the grass and have some fun in the sun (weather cooperating?!) with barefoot bowls. It's lawn bowls gone casual and just the thing to start off the YPN social calender for 2011.

Bendigo South Bowling Club (Palmerston St, Bendigo) is kindly hosting YPN for some competitive bowling around on Tuesday 18th January from 6.00pm, $7.00 per person (including bowl hire), drinks at bar prices.

So whether you are in it for a casual drink and laugh or to capture victory of the green, join us for a night of drinking, laughing and hopefully a bowl or two.

To get your name on the scorecard accept the invite on facebook or email by Friday 14th January.

Tips for Beginner Bowlers

  • The larger black ball is called 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.
  • 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 rinks. There is a ditch on the outside of the green to catch badly delivered bowls.
  • You bowl from alternate ends, usually standing on a mat.
