The 'HOUSE' Rules
The following house rules apply when playing social and corporate bowls:
1. Bare feet or flat soled shoes/thongs only
However, we do ask that footwear is worn at all other times in the Clubhouse
2. No food or drinks allowed on the green
Food and drinks are not permitted on the green at anytime, even when walking to the other end. If you wish to take your drink to the other end, please walk round the green. Refreshments are allowed in the sun-shaded seating around the green and must be purchased inside the club.
3. Don’t sit on the ditches
If you require a seat please use benches and sun-shaded seating around the green.
4. Correct delivery of bowl
Remember to roll the bowl along the ground at all times. Do not under any circumstances throw the bowls as this will damage the green; anyone caught throwing a bowl above knee height will be removed from the green immediately. The co-ordinator for the day will show you how to correctly deliver a bowl.
5. THE RULES
The object of the game is to get as close to the jack as possible.
Play in both directions.
Place the mat and jack in the middle of the rink in line with the number before every end.
Look for the smallest circle on every bowl, that’s the side the bowl will bend towards.
All players must stand on the mat with both feet before delivering the bowl.
Right handed players step out with their left foot, left hand players step out with their right foot.
Children under 14 must be supervised at all times. Don’t let them play in the sand, there’s a huge beach just across the road for that. Participants aged 9 years and under are not permitted to play. Children aged 9-12 years can play (as covered by Insurance) bowls $5pp. Junior bowls are available for use on the grassed area out back for children under 9 years.
Smokers are asked to use designated smoking areas only; this helps ensure the safety of others and also the quality of our greens. Please ask staff for the location of our DOSA.
