Background & Activity
The Club plays lawn bowls outdoors on its Green between the end of April and the end of September. Members may use the Green at most times subject to it not being already booked. For novice members, coaching can be arranged.
Our Green has 6 rinks, which are used for league matches, club competitions, Friendlies and roll-ups.
