How to Join
If you are thinking of trying bowls there are a couple of ways you can get in touch.
If you are new to bowling and want to give it a go, come to one of our taster sessions. Alternatively you can come down to the club and ask for the green steward and they will be only too pleased to talk you through the game, what's involved and give you a go. If you want to learn some bowling lingo before you give it a go, have a little look at this Bowls Basics page.
If you just want to join then complete the Application Form, you will be required to pay for the club annual subscription fee alongside your chosen membership.
