10 reasons to play bowls

by Team BV

It’s fun and family-friendly
There are a lot of reasons why bowls is fun. One is that the whole family – youngest to oldest – can play!
Easy to learn
There aren’t many sports where you can get the hang of it in a few seconds.
It’s social
Bowling clubs are a great social place to meet new friends, or catch up with current ones.
Anyone can play
Bowls is for everyone, regardless of age, gender, cultural background or ability.
There is a club near you
More than 520 clubs throughout Victoria, so there will be one within easy distance of home or work.
It’s cheap
Far cheaper to play or join a club than many other sports, plus food and drinks at 1970s prices!
You don’t need much equipment to start
Flat soled shoes and a set of bowls. Clubs have bowls to loan, and even without the right shoes, there’s barefoot bowls.
Lots of different ways to play
You can play alone, or with a team. For a long time, a short time, socially, against mates or play with the whole family.
It’s active and outdoors
It’s a great way to stay active, fit, healthy and get outdoors.
You can represent Australia
Heaps of opportunities to represent your state and country. Bowls is a Commonwealth Games sport.
