BAREFOOT BOWLING INSTRUCTIONS

  • Please don’t sit on the edge of the green. Placing your feet on the edge of the grass may cause the edge of the green to break away, so your bowls will drop off the edge into sand.
  • Flat soled shoes, thongs and barefeet are ok. Heel and shoes with tread will damage the greens.
  • Please bowl with a mat to avoid scuffing the grass at the point of delivery.
  • Please deliver bowls smoothly. Bowls must not be thrown in the air, dropped or dumped into the green as the grass will bruise, dent and disease as a result.
  • Driving (delivery of bowls at speed) is not permitted – it can cause serious damage to the bowls, your ankles, feet and the plinth and players on other rinks.
  • Please do not drink or eat on the greens as both can damage the lawn and a dropped glass is dangerous to bare feet and our machinery.
  • The greens take a lot of time to prepare and are expensive to maintain, so please treat them with care to ensure future use by all.
  • Improper use of the facilities may result in a forfeiture of green fees and/or security deposit.
  • Thank you for your consideration and please enjoy your day.
