Ruddington Bowls Club invites people interested in taking up bowls to their free Open Day on Sunday 10 May 2015 from 2.30pm to 5pm at their Elms Park base in Ruddington. Folks will be able to try their hand at bowls, hear about the club, plus enjoy refreshments and cake to mark their 91st year.
Those who like their free session on the Open Day will be invited to take up a New Member offer. For only £5 people can enjoy 4 coaching sessions with qualified coaches and up to 6 informal games with members. All equipment is provided free for the trial and if the person likes the club, the £5 comes off their membership! All the club asks is people wear flat smooth soled shoes with no heals (hence flip flops or old slippers might suit the purpose) in order to protect the greens.
Club Secretary Brian Tolley said: “We have a lovely club, in a fabulous setting with a caring and mutually supportive membership. The fact is the game is great / easy to learn – but, the real dividend comes through the friendships and companionship developed within the membership. We have all kinds of folks getting along and would love to welcome more”.
Bowls season runs May through to September and the game itself is very affordable and easy to pick up. For those who are not really competitive and just want social games, there are weekly informal club roll ups, and no less than 20 friendly non competitive games on our fixtures card to be enjoyed.
For the more competitive there games available just about every day of the week. (Evening league games 6.30pm starts and also games staged in the afternoon). There are games for male, female and mixed teams – a great range of formats to choose from.
Brian added: “Bowls can have a stuffy image, but, generally we play in casual clothes for non competitive games. There is something for folks of all levels of ability and the physical demands are not that great. So, why not join us in the sun and make some new friends?”
