Capalaba Sports Club has 3 well maintained greens for use by barefoot bowlers. All greens have lights so bowls can be played at night. Platters can be served but all food must be catered for in house.
Barefoot bowls is a great way to relax and enjoy the company of friends or family. Barefoot bowls requires no brilliant sporting prowess or superior motor skills and encompasses all levels of ability. All that is needed is a desire to have a go and have fun. So kick off your shoes and enjoy a fun day with family, friends or colleagues. Give it a go, it’s easy to play, and fun to learn.
Barefoot bowls is a great team building event and with prior notice we can set up some fun games for you and your colleagues to play!
Children aged 5 years and over are welcome to bowl as we have some lighter bowls to accommodate them.
The basics for barefoot bowls
The larger black ball is a bowl. The small white ball is the jack. The aim of the game is to get your bowl as close to the jack as possible. The team which has the bowl the closest wins the end and gets 1 point/closest bowl. Bowls are weighted so that they don’t roll in a straight line, but in a curve. Each bowl has a small and large icon on each side. Always keep the small icon on the inside of your delivery. You will play on a green (of very short grass) which is divided into 7 rinks (lanes). You bowl from alternate ends, usually standing on a mat.
Barefoot bowls is so much fun! Barefoot bowls cost just $10 per person and a game generally takes about 1.5 hours, if it is not peak time (November & December) you are welcome to stay on longer if you like.
Please call 3390 3011 for all barefoot bowls bookings.
Capacity ‐ Our greens can cater for up to 168 people.
IMPORTANT: Please note our greens will close from 7pm daily from May to September. One green is out for maintenance from November to January.
