Bowling in Australia

Bowling in Australia is not the same sport as in Sweden or USA. In Australia bowling is actually played on grass! The bowls are oval and more weighted at one of the sides which make them turn slightly to either the right or the left. If you have played golf the behavior is similar to a “draw” (to the left) or “fade” (to the right). Bowling seams like a very conservative game played by oldies in long sleeves; it is not! Anyone can play and it is very relaxed. The Coogee Bowls club arrange barefoot bowling for $10/2hours and person.

Here are some pictures from the event and also from the past weekend’s Easter dinner!
