Bowls Australia have an exciting participation product called Jr. Jack Attack, aimed at bringing the sport of bowls to kids around the nation.
Jr. Jack Attack is designed to enable school children to participate in an engaging format, which is both fun and inclusive.
Importantly, it can be conducted on a range of surfaces including greens, carpets, concrete, wooden floors and just about anything else that is flat, eliminating the restrictions of requiring a bowling green to introduce new audiences to the sport.
Having identified the limitations of children using full-size bowls that have been designed for adults, the Jr. Jack Attack initiative comes in the form of a kit that includes a carry bag, 32 light-weight rubber bowls, eight jacks, 50 cones, a target score mat, eight stepping mats, activity cards, and clubs who purchase two kits will also receive a complimentary scoring wedge, providing all the tools for a whole school class to participate concurrently.

The Jr. Jack Attack kit is designed primarily for primary school age children, aged between seven and fourteen and will form part of the Sporting Schools Program – www.sportingschools.gov.au.
