New to Bowling

Thinking about taking up lawn bowls or simply joining in for the social fun?

Well, before you do, did you know that the sport of lawn bowls has a long history that stretches back to at least the 13th century and possibly earlier, with the world’s oldest surviving bowling green – the Southampton Old Bowling Green – dating way back to 1299!! We’re not that old and despite the common belief that bowls is for old folk, it’s really a popular game for any age, and it’s been around for a long time!

So, come along to our Club! You are welcome to visit between 4pm-6pm any Friday afternoon and talk to our friendly members about joining.

Have a go!
