FEELING THE HEAT?

TOO HOT TO EXERCISE OUTSIDE?

Have you thought of taking up indoor bowls? A great game of skill you can play all year round in superb air conditioned premises.

You don’t have to be an athlete, anyone can play bowls regardless of age or ability. Taking up bowls is a great way of making new friends whilst enjoying gentle exercise. Or maybe you can no longer play your chosen sport but you are still competitive and enjoy a challenge? Whatever the reason, you can play indoor bowls at a time and level to suit you. Indeed we have recruited nearly 80 new members since re-opening after the pandemic in May 2021.

So why not come to the club, have a look round, see what we have to offer and have a go for FREE!

Coaching for beginners is available on Saturday mornings from 9 am – 11 am but if you can’t make Saturdays, come along on a Monday evening from 5 – 7 pm for a FREE taster. Our qualified coaches will take you through the basics of the game.  Just bring flat soled shoes. All equipment provided. Free parking.
