Bowls is inexpensive, fun for people of all ages, and only takes 15 minutes to learn the basics. The Club provides all the equipment you need, bowls, scoreboards, foot mats and the jack. Club coaches can even provide lessons – building up your skills from the basics, to learning about strategy, etiquette, and team games.
So, how does barefoot bowls differ from normal bowling? Well for a start, obviously it's in the name – no shoes! Flat soled shoes with no tread or heels, such as thongs are acceptable. Secondly, the rules are a lot simpler than regular or competition lawn bowls. Casual clothes and a casual attitude.
Looking for your new favourite sport? Or maybe you’ve tried bowls barefoot and you’re looking for a bit more of a challenge.
When you become an Full Club Bowls Member you’ll start competing in annual competitions.
Our club coach is available to provide expert guidance to beginners and seasoned bowlers and is capably supported by the whole team who are keen to assist all new and even the experienced bowlers to be their best.
A great way to start out at the Edge Hill Bowls Club is to join as a Social Member where you will have full access to the greens and coaching staff to get you off on the right track.
When you’re ready, we’d love to see you progress to competitive status and full membership.
Barefoot bowlers are most welcome! We will supply all essential equipment. We can even have a couple of experienced members on hand to get you started.
To protect the greens, only flat soled shoes (no heels or treads) can be worn, otherwise enjoy the freedom of going barefoot!
Our state-of-the-art greens have lights allowing bowls to continue well into the evening. Our veranda overlooks the green from the bar and offers a great vantage point to watch games.
Enjoy a casual game of bowls or become a club member – Everyone is welcome!
