The club held a successful Open Weekend on 30 September and 1 October with over 50 members of the public trying their hand at indoor bowling, many for the first time.
If you missed the Open Weekend and would like to have a go, we hold coaching sessions every Saturday morning from 8.30 am – 10.30 am. You are welcome to come along and join in with other new bowlers. Your first Taster Session is always free and our friendly coaches will show you the basics of the game. All equipment provided.
