BOWLS FOOTY

Fancy combining your love of AFL with your love of bowls? Here’s you chance

BOWLS FRISBEE

Throw a frisbee, see if you can reach it with your bowl.

BOWLS CRICKET

Play a Test or a Twenty20, get some runs on the board before you’re all out.

BOWLS GOLF

Design your own golf course and then see if you can get round the holes using your bowl as a golf ball.

BOWLS HOOPS

Three targets, three bowls – can you hit the target with all three?

It’s a bit like musical chairs, but with bowls and targets instead of chairs. So not really like musical chairs at all. But still fun.

TEAM TUG OF WAR

One team on each side, but who can move the jack the furthest?
