How to join
For the past four years, we have held a six week training course on Saturday mornings. This year we are starting on the 6th of August at 9:30 am to introduce newcomers to our most enjoyable game. In the past, these Introductory courses have proved very successful and resulted In well over 100 people coming along to give it a try. Most have found it to be rewarding and pleasurable, as well as bringing a new challenge for something to do over the winter months.
We will provide the equipment necessary and all we ask is that you bring along a pair of flat soled footwear. We have five separate rinks, each 40 yards long, and six yards wide, and they will be staffed by experienced club members who will show you the way. By the end of the six weeks, you will know whether this is for you and can then decide whether to become a club member.
The main season begins mid-September through to mid-April. During this time, we run nineteen Internal leagues, as well as enjoying weekend friendly fixtures with other clubs. We also run nine Individual competitions on a knock-out basis throughout the season. Bowling sessions are for two hours fifteen minutes and begin at 9.30am, 11.45am, 2.00pm and 4.30pm, as well as with evening sessions at 7.00pm. In addition to all these, there are daily opportunities to book a rink for extra practice and training etc.
Also, there is a social side to the club, with events usually on Saturday nights, including: quiz nights, Beetle drives, bingo and our New Year’s Eve dinner and dance. We have a fully licensed bar and a good range of hot drinks from our in-house dispenser. With over 260 members, we are probably the biggest club in the town and are well known to be a very friendly bunch!
Why not give it a try? If you wish, you can come and have a preview beforehand any Tuesday or Thursday morning from 9.30am, or a Friday evening from 7.00pm. Introduce yourselves and see the rinks in full swing.
During the summer, the club office may not always be manned, so, if you would like any further information we have an answering facility on our telephone and will get back to you if you leave your name and number.
