2019 Prospective Members: Bowl for Free during May

We welcome all players of all ages, abilities and sexes making it the perfect sport for all members of the family to enjoy together. Bowls is not only a sport as here in our friendly club we organise varied and active social events. We are committed to welcoming new members, helping those that otherwise might feel isolated, using our club as a gateway to creating lifelong friendships and to help us lead a healthier lifestyle.

The game is primarily aerobic and provides valuable cardiovascular exercise giving your muscles and joints good exercise, is played outside in the fresh air and generally improves your health and strengthens the immune system.

It also exercises your mind as you try to outwit your opponent!

Please contact us in order to join this dynamic and friendly club with coaching available and FREE sessions available during May.

We are across the bridge from Waitrose next to the play park.
