Anything! Feel free to wear your school sport uniform or something easy to move around in. However, you must wear flat sole shoes.

I don’t have bowls is that problem?

Not a problem at all. Your Roll Up hub club can provide junior bowls for you to use on competition day. If you already have your own bowls, you can use those too!

Yes, we can do that. Just make sure once you have registered you speak to the main contact for Roll Up either at your club or Hub club.
