Great Lumley Bowls Club

INVITATION TO NEW MEMBERS 2017 SEASON

FLEX YOUR BODY EXERCISE YOUR MIND ENHANCE YOUR SOCIAL LIFE

 

Contrary to popular opinion, the bowling green in your village is not hallowed ground! It is true it has to be treated with respect and be well maintained but it is there to be enjoyed. There is no special dress code (unless you're playing for your club) except that your shoes must be flat-soled - you'll understand why when you begin to play regularly.

Don't make the mistake of thinking that bowling is an "old man's game". Yes, the players you will see on the greens are elderly - but many have been playing for over 30 years! The younger you are when you take up the game, the better of course, but it is also accepted that players will take up the sport only when they retire. Even if you have been made redundant, or are out of work for a short time for whatever reason, whatever free time you have, whether a weekday afternoon or a Saturday afternoon, you will be able to play here at Great Lumley. You can pay and play without becoming a full member if you prefer. By paying a one-off subscription of only £10 you will be asked to pay only £1 per play for the rest of the season.

If you have a fitness problem, don't be put off. Instead of sweating over a rowing machine or pedalling on a bike going nowhere, you can enjoy gentle exercise in the fresh air in the company of like-minded people for very little cost (full membership costs only £25!) - and have fun! It doesn't matter if you can't bend down very far or are a little slow on your feet. There's no pressure. All the bowlers were new to the game at one time - some have been playing over 30 years and are now in their 80s - and all are more than willing to share their experiences of the game with you.

The outdoor bowling season is due to start on SATURDAY 15 APRIL 2017 so we are inviting YOU to join us. Whether you’ve played before or are just curious to give it a try . . .

JOIN US FOR A ROLL-UP ON SATURDAY, TUESDAY OR THURSDAY AFTERNOONS AT 1.15PM

~~~~~ THIS INVITATION IS FOR ADULTS ONLY AS WE DO NOT HAVE A JUNIOR SECTION ~~~~~

The bowling green is situated beside the Community Centre in the heart of the village, and is accessed through a gate to the front right of that building. 

You will enjoy FREE use of equipment and your first THREE sessions cost only £1 per session*. No expensive outlay for clothes or bowls. All we ask is that you wear FLAT shoes please.

Give it a try – you might surprise yourself!
