Annual Open Bowls

‘Tis the season for sports open days! Auriol Bowling Club is having their annual open day on Sunday 12th May between 11.00 am and 4.00 pm at the club’s bowling green in Auriol Park, Salisbury Road, Worcester Park. If you’ve never tried bowls before, Auriol Bowling Club is offering you a golden opportunity to give it a go for free. No special clothing is required other than flat-soled shoes or trainers. Coaching will be provided free of charge by the club’s qualified coaches, and light refreshments will be available throughout the day in the club’s pavilion.

Here is an activity/sport which combines physical exercise with a good social atmosphere. It is a wonderful sport for improving your flexibility and fitness – in an average game, a bowler is likely to walk a distance of around a mile – whilst at the same time improving your social life by enjoying a chat with your team-mates and other club members.

If you can’t make it to the Open Day, but would like to try bowls for yourself, and are over 18, you can enroll in the club’s Bowls4Free course. As would not be entirely unexpected from a course with such a name, this is a series of lessons totally free of charge (four of them), run by the club's coaches over the four consecutive weeks starting from Monday 20th May at 11.00am.

And if that isn’t enough you can come along to one of the club’s informal ‘roll-up’ sessions, held on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings (starting at 11.00 am), and Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, from 2.00pm each week during the season (which started this year on Monday 22 April). Other times can be arranged by appointment.

Are you convinced yet that Bowls are for you?
