NOTE The Official Come and Try program for October has now finished - BUT

Sessions will continue for 2-3 weeks into November, on Sundays, from 2:30PM - please phone (or email) as usual to confirm your interest and to book a spot.

In the event of a formal booking for a large group that requires all available greens, that will have to take priority, but Wayne or Jill will let you know before your day.

 

 

TO ALL WHO HAVE TAKEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO TRY BOWLS AT JINDALEE DURING OCTOBER:

 

Many thanks for being among the 130 Tryers who attended at least 1 session of Jindalee Bowls Club's “Come and Try” program.

Because of the cancellation of last Sunday’s session, through heavy rain, JBC is extending C & T to now include  Sunday 1st November as well as Friday 30th Oct.

Last Friday’s bowlers were well entertained by a  solo singer and Grant will again be present for our last 2 sessions.

 

For the more serious bowlers, you will be asked at next weekend’s sessions if you and your mates wish to enter a team in November’s Jack Attack competition commencing Fri. 6th Nov.

If so, our coaching staff will concentrate on various match play aspects of Jack Attack.. Find more information on our website, at  www.jindaleebowls.org.au  

 

To assist with having coaching volunteers available, we ask that you indicate ASAP your presence for one or both of these sessions - to Jbc-promate@outlook.com:

     Friday 30th 6.30 to 9.00pm - sausage sizzle/musician inc.

     Sunday 1st November 2.30 – 5.00pm  - musician inc.

   

A small donation would be appreciated to cover Friday night’s sausage sizzle and musician.

October is Come & Try month

Jindalee Bowls Club invites local residents, and interested others, to give the game a go. But, you need to register for this free event so we can plan to have you with us. Click here to register

When you think of lawn bowls, it’s easy to imagine retirees enjoying an afternoon’s gentle exercise in their starched whites. But the game has enjoyed a transformation in recent years, becoming increasingly popular with a younger generation looking for new ways to catch up with mates and have a bit of fun.

 

So it should come as no surprise that many of Australia’s bowls champions are either teenagers or in their twenties.

Check out this report on our Schools Program:

Barefoot bowls is helping change the image of the game. There are no strict dress codes or regulations – and, as the name suggests, you don’t even need shoes. These days, bowls clubs are very welcoming, fun places to be. Far from the stuffy image of old, they are now popular hangouts for anyone looking for light exercise, a social get-together and a schooner or two.

For those yet to discover the joys of the game, now is the perfect time to give it a go. Our very own Jindalee Bowls Club is participating in Bowls Queensland’s ‘Come & Try’ month with free sessions during October. 

All equipment is provided and there’s even free mentoring available from qualified coaches - AND the Bar-B-Q is available for a small extra cost.

 

Bowls is one of the easier sports for a beginner to pick up. You’ll start with an induction, where you will be taught the basic rules and bowling techniques. As you progress, you will be introduced to the finer skills of the game before taking part in a shortened version of team game play.

 

If you book as a group, you will learn and play together. Single visitors will be teamed up with like-minded participants. Everyone is free to hang around after their session to socialise in the licensed clubhouse

Become competitive in no time ... and ... Join a Jack Attack team

 

With apologies - due to circumstances beyond our control Jack Attack for 2020 has been CANCELLED - BUT WE WILL RETURN IN 2021 - watch for it!

 

If a taste of bowls leaves you wanting for more, Jindalee Bowls Club will be running a Jack Attack tournament on Fridays and Sundays in November and December. This fun and fast-paced version of bowls involves three players per team each aiming to get as close to the jack as possible.

   Come and Try - registration now closed for 2020

Thanks to Scottie and the Grounds Crew, we always have impeccable greens, without which there would

be no bowls
