BeanBag Games Line Club Bowls Double

( BeanBag, Handball, Kickball, Physical Contest, Tenpins )

This game is like Single Club Bowls except that the object of the play is to pass the ball or bean bag between a pair of upright Indian clubs instead of trying to knock one over.

If there be a few players one pair of clubs is set up for each player with an interval between them two inches wider than the diameter of the ball that is used. At from ten to twenty feet from the clubs a line is drawn on which the players stand to throw. The players slide the bag over the floor or roll the ball all play at once each player scoring one if his ball or bag goes between the clubs without knocking them over. The clubs are then put in order if displaced the balls or bags gathered up and the players return to the starting line and bowl again.

The player wins who first scores twenty-five or fifty as may be determined before the game opens.

Where there is a large number of players the same form of play is used with the players in relay formation that is they should be divided into groups of equal numbers each group lining up in single file before the starting line and each member of the group bowling in turn.

The group or team with the highest score when all have bowled wins.
