- Clothing (dress code) - bowling shoes are a must, please do not travel to and from the club in them. There are a wide selection of shoes on offer, from slip-on to trainer style. Until you get a club shirt, a white top is acceptable for friendly games. Unless otherwise stated, grey trousers (or skirts for ladies if they wish) are the norm for weekday games, whilst white is worn at weekends. Shorts are now widely accepted. Formal shorts for friendlies and competitions. Waterproofs are a sensible addition to every bowler's bag, given our unpredictable weather.
- Equipment - as you progress, chalk and a measure will become a part of your game, but not essential from the start.
- And again, once you become more familiar with the game, you will learn as you go along. The aim of this guide is not to clog you up with facts but just to get you started. You won't be expected to know everything, and most bowlers are only too glad to help those starting out, so if you are not sure, just ask.
And remember, our coaches are on hand to offer free advice and invaluable coaching.
- MAKE SURE you check the notice boards. Put your name down for any game you would like to participate in. The club captain will select the teams for friendly (mixed) matches, the captain/vice captain for competitions/leagues and the ladies captain for ladies friendlies and competitions. Don't be afraid to enter internal competitions - it's all good experience.
- You can keep abreast of goings on within the club, plus fixtures and team sheets on this website. The club will also from time to time email or text with items of interest.
