ROLL UP FOR A WEEKEND OF FUN & GIVE BOWLS A GO

 

Ever thought of playing Bowls – well now’s your chance to give it a go in a nationwide extravaganza being organised by Bowls England over the weekend of Friday 27th to Sunday 29th May 2022.

Clubs in Norfolk will be opening their doors to people who want to try a new sport, have some fun and meet new people so why not call into a club near you and give it a try. Bowls is fun, friendly, sociable, addictive & can be played by all the family from young children to grandparents whatever their age & it’s not physically demanding. It’s normal to feel a little apprehensive about starting something new, but bowls is a sport that is easy to take up and you’ll be assured a warm welcome. It is very doable, whatever your physical ability, relatively inexpensive and is really sociable.

The Commonwealth Games is coming up later this summer which once again includes bowls so why not come along and see what makes this sport such an accessible and vitalising option for everyone.

So why not give it a go?

You may have watched the world’s best on the TV at the recent World Championships at Potters. Don’t worry, you will not be expected to be that standard but you will enjoy yourself and maybe want to come back for more.

The Clubs taking part are listed below so why not give them a look on the day – you will get a great welcome & give it a go, try something different and have fun! Don’t worry about equipment as all will be provided but please bring flat soled footwear.

We hope this will be the start of your relationship with bowls, and the beginning of you realizing the joy and benefits of this wonderful sport.

To view an interactive map of each Club and further information go to the Bowls England website https://www.bowlsengland.com/bowls-big-weekend-2022/ or the Clubs own webpage or face-book page.
