Every Tuesday in April you can come along to try out Jack Attack a brand new social, short, snappy style of bowls. Tuesday 8th of April is FREE. There will be a BBQ and the bar will be open. Every other Tuesday in April it will be $5 per player and food and drink will be available from our bistro and bar.
Its Social: Bring your mates, make a team!
Even though only 3 players are on the field at once, you can enter a team with as many players as you like to share the bowling duties and you can call in a supersub at any time! If you're on your own, no problem, we'll find you a team.
Its Short: a quick game's a good game!
Its 6.30pm for a 7pm start. The game lasts about an hour and it will be all over by 9pm at the very latest, depending on how long you stick around for socialising and food, so you won't be out late on a 'school night'.
Its Sharp and Snappy: And bowls are supplied!
The format is two bowl triples played in two, five-end 'sets' - with a tie-break end if required. Teams can call a 'power play' once in each set with double points available should they win the end. There will also be weekly prizes for teams and if your team plays the whole month, there may be special rewards at the end of the comp.
What is Jack Attack?
Bowls is not like it was when your grandma was a girl, or even like it was 10 years ago when Crackerjack was made. Jack Attack has come about based on a new initiative in bowls, the Australian Premier League. The APL held its first event on the Gold Coast in November 2013 and featured elite bowlers from around the country representing their state in a week long competition using this format.
You may have caught some of the coverage on Foxtel.
If you did, you may have also seen the Blundstone Melbourne Roys representing Victoria. Fitzroy Victoria is the home of the Melbourne Roys and is excited to be one of a number of clubs across the country partnering with Bowls Australia to trial this brand new bowls format.
How To Enter
If you want to get in early and guarantee your team gets a game, you can book on 9481 3137 or download the entry form and drop it back to the bar or by email. If its already Tuesday when you see this, you're welcome to just rock up and take your chances! Either way, it will be a spectacle.
Hope to see you there!
