Barefoot bowls is a casual game of bowls with no shoes. You can choose to wear socks or flat sole thongs, but most prefer bare feet.
Lads, put your tools down – this one is for you! Grab your mates, play some bowls and relax with a beverage and food. Tradies day could be a mini comp, barefoot bowls or a sample of Jack Attack. It’s the perfect match for your next RDO!
COME AND TRY DAY
A come and try day offers you the chance to visit your local Bowls Club and go for a leisurely roll. It’s all about getting a feel for the sport. The environment is very relaxed and welcoming, and some clubs provide food, competitions, prizes, playing and membership opportunities.

Fun in the sun for the kids. Kid days usually run for a couple of hours and allow kids to have a go at bowls. Some clubs have other activities such as face painting and offer lunch boxes.
In some parts of Victoria, the local Bowls Club is often the hub of the community. In times of hardship, our local sports clubs and businesses step up to support those in need. Charity days are about helping communities, organisations or individuals in need. Attending a charity day will include a roll on the green coupled with a fundraising activity like a local market, silent auction, bbq or a gold coin donation upon entry.
Jack Attack is Bowls Australia’s social-competitive version of bowls that can be enjoyed by new and experienced players. Jack Attack is a six to eight-week competition and staged as a mid-week evening competition.
