Playing indoor bowls is a good way for people of all ages and abilities to get active and be more social. It can be played casually or competitively, and is ideal for those wanting a more gentle form of exercise. With sections for young players, the visually-impaired and those with disabilities, as well as for both genders and mixed play, bowls is a pastime that offers something for everyone.
The game is simple to learn but becoming skilled at it requires determination, patience and an understanding of tactics. It is different to your usual fast paced sports and attracts a different kind of player. Outside of the game itself, people can also get involved with bowls through coaching, volunteering, administration and committee work.
Beginners can attend trial events and coaching sessions using equipment supplied by our centres there are also junior sessions where younger people can learn to play the game as well. To find your nearest centre, click here.
