JACK ATTACK TOURNAMENT
Time & Location
About the Event
Jack Attack is a fun and fast-paced format developed from the traditional form of lawn bowls, aimed to encourage participation by non-bowling members of the community.
The JBC Tournament will be played on Fridays and Sundays through November and December
Jack Attack is super easy to play!
It is played by three players per team who each deliver 2 bowls in each end, aiming to get as close as possible to the jack.
The alternating delivery of all six bowls by both teams completes an end, when teams then change direction of play and re-position the jack.
Teams complete two sets of five ends to determine a winner, and should the sets be even, a sudden-death tie-break will be played.
It’s all over in 60 minutes!
It emulates the style of play of the Bowls Premier League (BPL) competition, which is broadcast live on Fox Sports and Sky Sport NZ each February and November.
Jack Attack allows for the BPL format to be played directly at clubs across the nation, capitalising on its social, fast-paced format to help encourage participation by non-bowlers.
Jack Attack appeals to people who are looking for a more structured bowls competition than barefoot bowls, but don’t have the time to committ to longer formats of the game.
It’s intended to be run as a four-week competition, staged ideally on a midweek evening, but clubs are free to schedule games any time that suits their club and audiences.
