SOUTH Tweed Trippers enjoy nothing more than meeting people, having a social game of bowls and sometimes on a warm day, a nice cold beer.

"Every Sunday the Trippers travel to a bowls club around Queensland or Tweed area," Tripper's president Daryl Maxwell said.

At the end of the day they add up the scores, work out who the winners are, award prizes and celebrate with drinks.

"(It's) sometimes fun, sometimes serious," Mr Maxwell said.

"Some clubs are a bit more serious than others."

On Sunday they met the travelling Robina and Tugun clubs and do battle at the South Tweed Sports club.

With over 20 bowlers on the greens it's a battleground of bowls, conversation and a lot of big smiles.

"It's not highly competitive, mostly social," Trippers player Russ Howard said.

"That's the reason I'm here bowling."
