Indoor Bowls

Indoor Bowls

When winter comes around, Bowls like many outdoor games, become less easy to play. So indoor variations rule have come into existence.

Indoor Bowls is simply the indoor incarnation of Lawn Bowls, played on strips of simulation green similar length to Lawn Bowls rinks.

There are subtle rule differences but ostensibly it’s the same game.

At RSA Tauranga we play indoor bowls year round with the sub club operating at 1.30 pm on Monday afternoon as well as annual tournaments and hosting visiting clubs.

Coaching is available and is open to all ages. Email or see the staff in the office for more details.



Snooker is a cue sport that is played on a large baize-covered table with pockets in each of the four corners and in the middle of each of the long side cushions. A regulation (full-size) table is 12 ft × 6 ft (3.7 m × 1.8 m).

It is played using a cue and snooker balls: one white cue ball, 15 red balls worth one point each, and six balls of different colours yellow (2 points), green (3), brown (4), blue (5), pink (6) and black (7). A player (or team) wins a frame (individual game) of snooker by scoring more points than the opponent(s), using the cue ball to pot the red and coloured balls.

A player wins a match when a certain number of frames have been won. At the Tauranga RSA we only have one snooker table which is used regularly by the members, by belonging to the RSA it allows you the opportunity to play in competitions and at other club venues in the region.

8 Ball

8 Ball

Pool, Eight-ball, sometimes called stripes and solids and, more rarely, bigs and littles or highs and lows, is a pool game popular in much of the world, and the subject of international amateur and professional competition.

Played on a pool table with six pockets, the game is so universally known in some countries that beginners are often unaware of other pool games and believe the word “pool” itself refers to eight-ball.

RSA Tauranga has a large number of enthusiastic pool players who hold regular club nights on @ 7.00pm Tuesday, as well as hosting and visiting many other similar clubs during a year.
