National Open Weekend – 28th to 31st May
Wellington Bowling Club
As you will be aware, this is a national initiative offering Bowls England affiliated clubs the opportunity to promote our welcoming and socially-distanced sport and attract new members. At Wellington, we are planning an Open Evening on Friday 28th May from 6.00pm, and an Open Day on Monday 31st May between 11.00am and 3.00pm.
We know that 20% of new bowlers join our sport on the back of open weekends, that our clubs want support to help recruit new players and that there are plenty of people out there who would love to have a go at bowls. We will be waiving 2021 affiliation fees for any brand new bowler joining a club on the back of the National Open Weekend.
Affiliated clubs who sign up will be able to access FREE resources, including bowls-specific workshops to help run a great event and grow your club. In addition, publicity material and creative resources for social media channels, websites and within your local community will be made available. It will be supported by a national marketing campaign to help raise awareness of the events across the country, and some clubs will get a visit from an England Commonwealth Games Squad bowler.
More information and registration details will be coming out very soon.
