Never bowled? It’s never too late to learn!

What is special about lawn bowling?

  • The game is inexpensive. Yearly membership fees entitle you to play in the games at no charge (excluding tournaments and a minimal charge for league play)
  • Beginners can use the Club’s bowls at no cost
  • You don’t need a partner
  • You don’t need a team. Teams are drawn up from players who show up for the afternoon game.
  • All positions on the teams are important so it doesn’t matter if you have lots of experience and are a good bowler, or just a beginner!
  • You do need to wear smooth flat-soled shoes to protect the greens.

And, of course, you can join in our social activities that occur throughout the year and during winter.
