Bowls is a friendly and sociable activity. It offers a great way to get gentle exercise and meet other people.
New members attend a taster session to assess their level before joining a group. The basics of the sport are easy to learn. The more you play, the better you get. But be warned: it can become seriously addictive! We run two bowls groups, both of which welcome new members.
Equipment: Bowls and other equipment are available, but please wear comfortable clothing and flat-soled shoes. Initial coaching and further guidance is available.
Charges: £4 per session (charges waived if you do become addicted and decide to join the bowling club)
Equipment: Flat-soled shoes, preferably bowling shoes, are necessary, but other equipment and guidance can be provided.
Constraints: Because of limitations at Horsham, initial coaching needs to be obtained before joining this group – either with the Summer Group or with a bowls club.
Charges: £7 per session.
