10 REASONS TO PLAY LAWN BOWLS

IT’S FUN & FAMILY FRIENDLY – Bowls is great fun and is something the whole family can enjoy together.

IT’S SOCIABLE – Bowls attracts people of all ages and from

all walks of life. Bowls clubs are a great way to meet new people or to enjoy time with loved ones and friends.

ANYONE CAN PLAY – Bowls is truly a sport for all. Literally anyone can play regardless of age and physical ability.

HAND EYE COORDINATION – Assists with hand-eye coordination and concentration.

IT’S LOW COST – Whether you play socially or pennant, bowls is cheaper to play than most other sports.

YOU DON’T NEED MUCH EQUIPMENT – You don’t need a lot of expensive equipment to play bowls. Eventually you will need a set of bowls but our club provide new players with a set to learn with. The only other thing you need is a pair of flat soled shoes and you are ready to play.

IT’S VARIED – there are many ways and formats to play bowls. You can play alone, or with a team. For a long time, a short time, socially, against mates or play with the whole family.

ACTIVE & OUTDOORS – Bowls is a great way to get some light exercise and spend time outdoors.

IT CAN BE COMPETITIVE – whether you are playing socially or are a dedicated bowler bowls brings out the competitive spirit in us all.    For those who would like to don the Club uniform there is pennant each week during the pennant season – September to February.

‘It’s not about winning or losing – it’s about playing the game
