Jack Attack Lite & Plus launched

by Aidan Davis

Bowls Australia (BA) has unveiled extensions to the Jack Attack program, with Clubs set to benefit from limited ‘Jack Attack Lite’ and ‘Jack Attack Plus’ promotions, as part of BA’s COVID-19 Return to Bowls Plan.

Jack Attack is the fun and fast-paced format of bowls, aimed at encouraging new participation in the sport, with games completed in just over an hour.

There are already over 245 Clubs licenced to play Jack Attack, with the new offerings announced today encouraging other Clubs to get involved for the first time or host further Jack Attack programs.

A limited number of Clubs will be offered a free Jack Attack licence for a trial period through the new Jack Attack Lite promotion; 50 Clubs that apply will benefit from this offer, which includes valuable support from local Regional Bowls Managers to help get programs running.

Clubs with an existing Jack Attack licence will be offered extra incentives through a new Jack Attack Plus offering, which is also being launched today; the Plus offering includes a range of promotional material, the provision of payments for Jack Attack co-ordinators and incentives such as funding for barbecues, clothing and trophies.

BA acknowledges the support provided by Sport Australia, through their MOVE IT AUS-Participation program, in helping more people to become physically active through playing Jack Attack.

More details about the Jack Attack Lite and Plus offerings, including online application forms, can be found on the Jack Attack page.
