Bowls3Five – coming this summer of bowls


Bowls3Five is the fast format of the game.  Three levels of competition so that everyone interested can have a go.  Depending on the competition you play in,  you can face a set number of ends, a shot clock, a tie breaker, a start time, (unlike the long format of the game) a finish time and potentially a tv crew!  Bowls 3 Five aims to fit into busy lifestyles of those finding themselves short on time but still wish to compete in sport and stay active or those who are stepping up to accept the challenge the shorter format provides.

The three different levels are – a social format for twilight competitions, a nationwide interclub competition and the inaugural Bowls 3 Five television league.

Bowls3Five – Twilight/Social

This format provides a fast and structured competition that can have an overall winner in a short length of time.  Be it the twilight/social competition that a club can run weekly or the shape of the competition that corporate events take (everyone loves bragging rights).  Very easy for the casual or non-bowler to pick up not just in the playing side of the game but in the more detailed side of scoring and keeping track of winning.

Contact your nearest club to see when their Bowls3Five twilight competition starts.
