Free Introduction to Bowling !

Following the bowling clubís successful Open Day on 30th May, prospective new members will be taking the opportunity of Friday evening free coaching sessions. Every Friday evening during the Summer, the club holds its Umbrella nights which is a fun competition open to all its members. During the evening, the club welcomes anybody young and old, male or female to try and see for themselves what a fabulous sport bowling is. The welcome afforded by club members will be most warm and friendly with a keen desire by any of the members to give you the full benefit of their experience. There is usually a qualified coach available to provide more expert tuition if needed. All the equipment necessary to play bowls is provided and all we ask is that shoes worn are reasonably flat for walking on the green.


This free offer is open for four separate Friday evenings after which one must become a member either to continue with the coaching or to join the other members in the Friday evening Umbrella night. So, if you feel you would like to give it a go, come along any Friday evening at
6 p.m.
and just make yourself known to one of the friendly members present.
