Club Combo Fives has been launched by Dandenong Club for players looking for a bit more action on the green.  Teams require five players and each team is allocated two rinks.  Played at night the competition features four formats each week, singles, pairs, triples, and fours.  The style of scoring in the pairs and triples means that more bowls count each match.  It’s new, it’s unique and it looks like a winner.
