Last year the Ruddington Bowls club membership grew by 7% – and is looking to do even better this year. They are inviting people interested in taking up bowls to their free Open Day on Sunday 8 May 2016 from 2.30pm to 5pm at their Elms Park base in Ruddington. Folks will be able to drop in, try their hand at bowls, hear about the club, plus enjoy refreshments.
Once again there is a New Member offer. For only £5 people can enjoy 4 coaching sessions with friendly 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 heels (flip flops or old slippers might suit the purpose) in order to protect the greens.
Brian Tolley Club Secretary said: “We have a lovely club, in a fabulous setting with a caring membership. People are made to feel welcome and can get coaching and help to learn the game. The game is great and 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”.
The bowls season runs May through to September and the game itself is affordable. For those who just want social games, there are weekly informal club roll ups, and around 20 friendly non competitive games to be enjoyed. League games are available just about every day of the week for the competitive. Evening league games start 6.30pm and we also have games in the afternoon and at weekends. The club has working members (not just the retired), games for male, female and mixed teams.
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 do what more than 13 people did last year – join us in the sun, join our club and make some new friends?”
