Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic


We are sorry you are not able to enjoy our wonderful game of indoor bowls but as Managers we must follow Government guidelines.  The club will remain closed until we are told it is safe to re-open. Like you, we have no idea when this will be but we will keep you informed.

The impact of this dreadful pandemic is touching all our lives and our hearts go out to those around the world who have lost loved ones.

Our sincere thanks go to all workers who are keeping us safe – the NHS, care workers, the emergency services, retail staff, IT, energy and local authority workers and all those working hard on our behalf.

Our thoughts are with our many members who are following Government guidelines and self-isolating. To those and ALL our members we would like to say STAY WELL, STAY SAFE. We can get through this together.

We hope to see you all at the club again soon.

It has been medically proven that Bowls improves your general health and helps to strengthen the immune system. Playing a game of bowls gives your muscles and joints good anaerobic exercise because you are not giving your cardiovascular system a workout.
During an average game, you will:
*Bend more than 40 times
*Walk about 1260 metres
*Swing your arm more than 40 times to deliver a bowl weighing more than 3 lbs.
This gives your muscles and joints good exercise as well as exercising your mind as you try to outwit your opponent!
