As many of you will know, indoor short-mat bowls sessions are held during the winter season on Mondays in the Market Hall in Whitchurch Civic Centre.
Numbers have been tailing off recently and we need YOU to help keep the Club active and vibrant. It’s a very enjoyable way to spend a winter afternoon or evening, catching up with people from other clubs and keeping your eye in ready for the summer outdoors. Skill and touch are the name of the game rather than brute force. After all, you have to avoid that pesky piece of wood in the middle of the lane.
Everything you need to know
Sessions are held on Monday afternoons 1:00pm until 4:00pm
and Monday evenings 7:00pm until 10:00pm in the Market Hall/Sports Hall in Whitchurch Civic Centre.
Please arrive up to 30 mins earlier to allow for the draw for partners. Because you will be playing a series of games with a partner, it is essential that you can stay for the whole session. There is no commitment to come every week.
Sessions cost £2 per head and this includes tea and biscuits.
Smooth, flat soled shoes are essential to protect the carpet. Many people play in their bedroom slippers. You don’t need special woods, just bring what you use in the summer. People who are new to bowling will be able to borrow woods.
There is a break for Christmas. This year the last session before Christmas will be on 10th Dec. On that day, bowling will start at 12:00 noon to allow for our Christmas “fuddle”. It’s unclear when bowling will recommence in January because of maintenance work planned for the hall. At the moment it is hoped to restart on 7th January, but watch this space or check with the Civic Centre reception.
Looking forward to seeing you there.
