***New To Indoor Bowling***

Are you looking for something to keep you active during the winter that can be enjoyable, interesting, competitive or non competitive?..... why not try your hand at indoor bowling.   No matter what age you are, young or not so young you will find that you will make friends with like minded people and have a great time with them before, during and after a game of bowls.

We have almost 400 members with new members joining every year; a good way to see if you would enjoy bowling indoors is to visit the Fresh Start sessions that are held on Saturday mornings during our winter season.... commencing at 8.30am through to 10.15am.  The Fresh Start session are organised and run by Stan Shellard, a qualified coach, and cost just £1.00 p per visit.      We have sets of bowls available (of various sizes) to borrow and a set that's right for you will be found.      All we ask is that you bring a pair of flat smooth-soled shoes or slippers to change into; you can even bowl in just your socks.


On Tuesday afternoons during the winter we have bowls drives open to everyone, all ages and all abilities are most welcome to join us.     The sessions start at 2.30pm and end at 4.30pm.... we would suggest that you arrive to book in just after 2.00pm.  

On Saturday evenings we have bowls drives which are again open to everybody; the sessions start at 6.00pm and end at 8.00pm.

In the summer we have bowls drives open to everybody on Wednesdays starting at 1.00pm and ending at 3.00pm.

All our bowls drives and Fresh Start sessions are run by Stan Shellard.  For more information please contact him on 01724 331981  or mobile 07715445150 or the Bowls Club 01724 280777.
