Stothert & Pitt Bowls Club

Bowls - What's that?

The game of Bowls is one of the best social games around--you will make a large number of new friends very quickly.

You don't need to be super-fit, you don't need to be sporty, but you do need a sense of humour and patience with your fellow bowlers; we all get it horribly wrong sometimes.

To play you need a flat well-maintained green [we've got one of those]; a set of bowls, sometimes called woods [we can lend you those]; a jack [we use club jacks]; and a mat [we provide those too] - oh and someone to play with [ you can play on your own but it isn't quite so much fun].

To preserve the green we require you to wear flat shoes with no tread, we can help you source these.

The object is to bowl your wood so that it ends up closer to the jack than any of the others. SIMPLEs eh?  So come and have a go!!

 

Well it's obvious which bowl is closest this time..... Well it's obvious which bowl is closest this time.....
...but sometimes it's best to measure. ...but sometimes it's best to measure.
