Jack Attack an “absolute hit” at Langhorne Creek

by Lachlan Williams

Bowls Australia’s (BA) social bowls program Jack Attack is back with a bang in 2021, with clubs hitting the ground running with the fast-paced bowls format.

About 25 clubs are already on board with Jack Attack this year, providing a fun-filled environment to introduce new people to the great game of bowls.

Langhorne Creek Bowling Club, about an hour south of Adelaide, is one of those clubs relishing the chance to host a Jack Attack program.

The club hosted its first night of Jack Attack during the week, with BA Participation and Programs Manager James Wilson calling the night “an absolute hit”.

“The members of the club and volunteers were overwhelmed by the support of the community, how easy and quick it was to run the night and just how much the players had fun,” he said.

“It’s a small town of about 400 people, but they got 10 teams – all with four to six players, with two more teams joining next week.

“It was great to see 50-odd people out there across 5 rinks, with about 60 per cent brand new to the sport. The club has reported a great return on investment already.”
