Don’t know how to bowl?
All players will be provided with modern coloured bowls. Club volunteers will be on hand throughout the tournament to show you how to deliver the bowl and give advice and tips. Remember, none of the other bowlers have had much experience with lawn bowls either, so it is an even playing field. After eight consecutive weeks of bowls you will be surprised how well you can play.
All teams and participants must fill in the registration form prior to commencement of the tournament. The completed forms can be handed in at the club or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Results & scoring
- Scoring is traditional bowls format where shots for closest bowls are worth 1 point each.
- Scores throughout the series are added cumulatively with the two teams recording the highest points tally to play one set of five ends to determine the overall winner.
- Members of these teams will be awarded winner or runner-up plaques/medallions.
- The name of the winning team will be engraved on The Capricornian Shield.
This is a barefoot bowling program specifically for non-bowlers. Any bowlers who are members of a bowls club registered as an affiliate of Bowls Australia are ineligible for this bowls program.
Each team can use only three players per end (two bowls each) but can interchange players as they wish at the start of the next end.
The jack may be placed anywhere the team wants but must be a minimum of 21 metres from the mat.
All players remain at the mat end to ensure the social atmosphere of the group is maintained i.e. no skips.
Each team gets one Power Play on one end per set. Should the team nominating the power play win that end their score is doubled for that end. The power play must be nominated before the end begins. Both teams can call the power play on the same end if they wish.
Any jack which goes out of bounds is to be re-spotted to the nearest line either side of the “T” depending on whether it went out of bounds to the left or right of the rink.
The club may play music during the game but volume is to be determined by the coordinator having regard to our near neighbours.
Children are welcome but must be under direct parental supervision at all times.
