Coconut Bowling, Want to Try?

Coconut Bowling Want To TryAre you accustomed to play bowling? Once upon a time, you must try the coconut bowling located in Rumah Bali, Tanjung Benoa, Nusa Dua. This game is similar to bowling, but the tools and the method of playing are different. Foreign tourists are very pleased to play this game because it is made from safe and natural materials.

This kind of game poses the later development of traditional game named pande or medayung that was frequently played by kids on the Island of the Gods. It was formerly a game of children at Jimbaran, Tanjung Benoa and Nusa Dua village.

By and large, this game is played in the afternoon after coming home from school and finishing help parents in the fields, feeding cattle and doing other routine activities. The tool in use is stone where it is played in group and there is a winning and losing group.

However, today in the coconut bowling game the stone has been replaced with bamboo as coconut pin and coconut serves as a ball. In the game, no one loses and wins. If a player is managed to knock down all the bamboos amounting to 12 pieces, he or she will receive tremendous applause.

The distance of bamboo to the point of throwing is around 7-8 meters. The floor is in the form of fine gravel, so it will feel gentle on foot. This game can be undertaken in turns. No bet is involved and it is purely the sport of brain and limbs.

There are two ways to play the game. Firstly, a player can throw the coconut by hand directed at the standing bamboo. And secondly, a player can use the feet. First of all, place the ball (coconut) at the top of the foot. Then, it is swung and thrown. The second way is difficult, but is the most preferred by travelers. In short, the game is really absorbing. (BTN/015)
