History of Barefoot Bowls

In the 1970's, a group of the Heathmont Bowls Club ladies team, on returning from celebrating at the Melbourne Cup, - a tad merry and still dressed in racing carnival attire - caused quite a stir by kicking off their high heels to play bowls in their bare feet; in what is thought to have been the first ever recorded game of barefoot bowls.

Since then the bare foot bowls concept has grown considerably and is emulated by bowls clubs across Australia and internationally.

Can anyone play bowls?

Do you have to play it barefoot?
You can also wear thongs or flat soled shoes - although it is more fun in your barefeet! No heels though.
Can I include barefoot bowls with a function?

Can we imbibe alcoholic beverages whilst barefoot bowling?
Yes. We have a modern outdoor decking and seating area where you can relax and partake in a tipple from the bar whilst soaking up the fun.
Do you have BBQ facilities
Yes. Nothing better than the aroma of sizzling sausages while you have a bowl.
What happens if I go home wearing someone else's sock?
People will laugh uncontrollably at the unfortunate victim, who will then likely spend an eternity tortured by 'the mystery of their missing sock'.
