The objective is to roll the weighted bowl either in an outwards right or left direction for it to reach the smaller white/orange ‘jack’ as close as possible.
Barefoot Bowls is about understanding how to use the bowls, mastering the techniques, and factoring in the ever changing weather conditions to best play your shot and get as close as possible to the jack to be able to win the end. The more bowls you get closest to the jack the more points you will win for your team.
When you arrive you will be introduced to your ‘HOST’. Your host will teach and guide you throughout the duration of your time on the greens. The host will explain how the game is played, as well as demonstrate the best way to bowl the ball, how to understand the bowl itself, as well as give tips and tricks and how to position your bowl as close to the jack as possible.
Teams will have to work together to guide and aide one another from both ends of the rink to help position there bowls as close to the jack as possible. Words of encouragement and team spirit will help drive one another to achieve a winning end.
