Bucks Barefoot Bowls + BBQ

Destination: TAURANGA

6 min
2+ Hrs

Forget everything you’ve ever been told about Lawn Bowls – they are no longer just for the grandmas and grandpas in our lives. The sport that was once exclusively associated with retirement has been taken over by a younger, barefoot, beer-drinking crowd – with the new and improved name of Barefoot Bowls. It’s an absolute hoot, and we finally understand why your Grandparents spend so much time at their local bowling club.

Have you ever wondered what your Grandparents get up to when they don their Napi-san whites and head down to the local bowling club? What is so special about these greens that can keep them entertained for hours? If you’re seriously asking those questions, you’ve obviously never tried your hand at the sport. After being overtaken by barefoot, beer sinking 20-somethings, Barefoot Bowls is now the cool kid on the block.

Tauranga Bowls Club is just like the bowlo you visited for your Grandad’s birthday last year, but with colder beers and a younger crowd. You and your buddies will be split into teams and given a quick lesson from the grey-haired gurus before you’re sent head-to-head in some epic, slow-paced ball action. The aim of the game is to get your bowl as close to the marker as possible without losing your shit at the surprising complexity of nailing the arm movement.

If you’re in more of a spectating kind of mood, the food and drinks menu hits the mark every single time. We’re talking about an enviable list of delicious beers and a killer range of bar snacks and all your favourite canteen-classic snacks. Take off your shoes and have some much-needed fun in the sun with Wicked Bucks. It’s probably the only time you can claim to be playing a sport while you’ve got a beer in your hand.
