What Our Members Say

An experienced bowler - Michael


"What does bowls offer for me as a sport? Fresh air, exercise, enjoyment, the company of like-minded people and the opportunity to develop and maintain eye and hand co-ordination! One can play at any level: club, district, county or even national. Club games range from friendly get-togethers through to serious competitions - singles, pairs, triples, fours and inter-county matches.

"There is a great social side to the club and all this comes at a very reasonable annual cost. Who could ask for more?"

A keen beginner – Myra


"I had a good friend who was already bowling and she encouraged me many times to come along and give bowling a try. I eventually went along for a few ‘roll-ups’ and attended the annual Open Day and thoroughly enjoyed it.

"I was a little apprehensive but need not have been as I was made so welcome by all at the club.  Everyone has helped me with advice and tips and I also have had some coaching. I have now played in some casual day competitions and a friendly match. I have really enjoyed my start to bowls and look forward to becoming more involved as I gradually improve."

An experienced league bowler – Simon


"I have been bowling since I was a teenager, and I thoroughly enjoy the challenge of league bowling and club competitions. I like the competitive angle, but also enjoy the team spirit and social aspect of the club.

"In fact, I even managed to get my father to join, and he is now a major contributor to the club activities and bowling."
