You never know – you may enjoy the morning, afternoon or evening so much that you wish to get involved and take up the great game of bowls at Bero Bowlo.

Some tips for beginner bowlers
  • The larger black ball is called a bowl. The small white ball is the jack. They are supplied by Beresfield Bowling Club – at no charge.
  • The aim of the game is to have your bowl as close to the jack as possible.
  • Bowls are shaped so that they don’t roll in a straight line, but in a curved motion.
  • 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 Synthetic green (artificial short grass) which is divided into rinks. There is a ditch on the outside of the green to catch badly delivered bowls.
  • In social/barefoot bowls, the teams are usually a game of triples (3 players per team) or 4’s (4 players per team). The lead (1st player) plays the jack.  The Skip (last player) aligns the jack on the centre line and a player from each team plays alternatively.  Each player tries to deliver their bowl as close to the jack as possible.
  • Flat soled shoes need to be worn on our synthetic greens.
  • You bowl from alternate ends, standing on a mat, which is supplied by the Club.
