Social Competitions

Social competitions are a fun way to get involved with Bowls at your local club. The competitions are aimed at creating a fun a inviting atmosphere for all, not just bowlers.

Competitions are played under the Jack Attack format, with 2 sets of 5 ends plus a tie break end if required. Matches are capped at 1.5 hours to make sure you’ve got time for dinner afterwards and with unlimited substitutions between ends you can bring as many people as you want to be part of the team if someone needs to duck out early!

Competition Format

  • Three players on the Green
  • Team order interchangeable (between ends)
  • Unlimited Substitutions (between ends)
  • Each player plays two bowls per end
  • Five ends per set
  • Two sets per match
  • Sudden-Death tie break end to determine winner, where sets are split evenly
  • Number of bowls closer to the jack than the nearest opposition bowl equals points for the end
  • Winner of previous ends places the jack wherever they want at the opposite end of the green
  • Each team receives a PowerPlay* end per set
  • If the Jack is knocked out of play it is placed back on the ‘T’

*PowerPlay – Points scored are doubled for the end. Opposing team skip must be notified prior to the end starting that you wish to use your PowerPlay.
