While lawn bowls has a long-held reputation for being the sport of choice for our golden oldies dressed all in white, in this day and age, that is far from the case. These days, clubs are encouraging people of all ages to come and give bowls a go – and why not? It's a relaxed, all-inclusive night of fun suitable for every single member of the family. Don't leave anyone behind. From the youngest bowling enthusiast right through to Great-Gran, everyone can play a round or two of what is sure to be a very special, if not memorable, night of family fun.
You might not think of yourself as a 'bowls type person', but you may just be pleasantly surprised. The bowling green has become a venue and activity of choice for functions such as birthday parties, engagement parties, singles clubs, Christmas parties and even corporate events, proving its increasing popularity. Everyone is trying it and having a 'ball' in the process.
Experienced players will be on hand to assist beginners and offer guidance throughout the night. Dinner is served hot and fresh from the BBQ grill. The sausage sizzle is a little extra, but oh, so delicious. Once you smell that onion grilling, how can you resist? There is also an open bar and craft stall on offer throughout the night.
Plenty of clubs host barefoot bowls each week, but for those in the South Eastern suburbs, the Cranbourne Bowling Club have a 'Come and Try' night every Friday from 6pm to 9pm (weather permitting) for only $6 per person, or a family consisting of two adults and two children for $20. Bowls are supplied and flat-soled shoes are requested as an alternative to barefoot bowling - but why not try iT au naturel. It's much more fun.
