Questions and Answers

  • At what age can I play? - It is probably not until someone is in their teens that they can fully participate with (and even outperform) more seasoned bowlers.  Older bowlers have carried on enjoying the sport well into their eighties and even nineties.
  • Who can play? - Bowling is an ideal sport for both sexes and can be played in either male, female or mixed teams. 
  • What equipment do I need to start bowling? - You will only need flat soled shoes (to protect the playing surface).  We have a small selection of bowls for beginners to share. 
  • Will I have to compete in matches and competitions? - Only if you want to.  Most members partake in team matches and competitions, whilst others only play in friendly games against other clubs or in other social events.
  • Is bowling seasonal? - Yes, usually between April and September.  However, the Club operates year round in its social activities.
  • Is instruction/coaching free.  - Absolutely.
  • What opportunities are available? - Bowlers can represent the Club in matches and competitions around the country.  Opportunities also exist to represent your County nationally in matches and competitions and represent your Country internationally.
