Le Pine Triples Entry

The 2018 edition of the Le Pines Triples, will be held on August 18th 2018.  Over the last few years we have moved the Le Pines triples from the summer break to before the season. Last year the tournament was during the AFL bye week in finals. That was a hard time for club as they all have practice matches etc during that time, before Pennant season kicks off. We have moved the Le Pines Triples to August this year to avoid all the practice match and the AFL.

New Start time for the Le Pines Triples.

Being in August we have moved the start time to 10:30am.  With registration from 10am. We know that a number of teams travel from across the state, this should mean that we are finished early enough that they start their return trip in daylight.

Moving to an earlier time means that we also have to cater for the day, in the past we have provided Salad rolls, this year we will do a Lunch and nibbles at the end of the day.

Entry and Prizes.

The entry fee for this year is $30 per team.  Registration starts at 10am.  First Game at 10:30am, Entries close on 11th of August.

We look forward to hosting everybody at this years Triples.

Bowl Delivery

Bowl Delivery

Auburn Bowls Club is looking for new bowlers. If you ever have wanted to play bowls, now is a good time to start.  Bowls is a a game for all: men and ladies, for young and old  alike.  It is a game for those who are highly competitive and those who prefer just a social game.  It is a game for the physically fit and for those with disabilities.

Auburn Bowls Club is looking for anybody that would like to try lawn bowls competitively or even socially on a regular basis.  We have a great club and great people that are only too willing to help people new to the game.

If you are not sure on all the basics we have them here.

The basics of lawn bowls

Rink: area in which play takes place, usually a flat, grassed area, bounded by boundary pegs

Centre line: the line down the centre of the rink

Jack: small white ball, rolled out along the centreline, the idea is to get bowls as close as possible to it

Bowls: the balls used by the player, up to four each, weighted on one side causing it to curve as it rolls

Mat: placed on the centre line, players stand on it to bowl

The bowling

  • Stand on the mat, feet together, knees and waist bent slightly
  • Take ball in your preferred hand (right or left)
  • Step out with your opposite foot (left or right)
  • Take a small back swing
  • Bend down and roll bowl along the ground
  • Roll it out at an angle, so the bowl curves back towards jack (see basics)
  • Avoid dropping or bouncing bowl so as not to damage green

Strategy

Draw shot: A slow, measured, finessed bowl trying to end closest to the jack

Drive shot: A harder, faster bowl used to try to knock other players’ bowls away

Scoring

  • The player who has their bowl or bowls closest to the jack wins
  • Points are awarded according to the number of bowls closest
  • Players judge the distance and number by eye
  • If in dispute, a measuring tape is employed
  • If still in dispute, an umpire called in to resolve
