We will provide bowls for you initially; any other necessary equipment is available at the club.

2. Bowls Instruction
We recommend that new players participate in a number of lessons to learn appropriate techniques and how the sport operates (etiquette and laws) as efficiently as possible. This allows the player to participate confidently as soon as they join the members in social bowls. All instruction is completely free. This provides you with as many lessons as you need (number differs from person to person).
3. What you need
You need a few items of clothing when you commence bowling in matches : white, or brown smooth-soled shoes. White or Grey Trousers (Ladies may wear Skirts or Trousers), Club shirt (one provide free on joining club).
You also need your own set of 4 bowls. Please consult your instructor before purchasing a set as this is likely to be your biggest investment. There are various sizes and types available; second-hand and new.
