Introducing Barefoot Bowls
The Basics for Barefoot bowls.
The larger coloured ball is a bowl. The small white ball is the jack. The aim of the game is to get your bowl as close to the jack as possible. The team which has the bowl the closest wins the end and gets 1 point/closest bowl.
Bowls are weighted so that they don’t roll in a straight line, but in a curve. 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 green (of very short grass) which is divided into 7 rinks (lanes). You bowl from alternate ends, usually standing on a mat.
