Garndiffaith Bowls Club

Getting Started

What do you need to get started?

The simple answer to above is - very little. If you have a mind to try out the game of Bowls there are two ways of doing this without incurring much expense.

The first is to go to your nearest bowling green and pay for a session. This should cost no more than a modest sum and for that you will be able to hire a set of bowls.

All you must ensure is that you are wearing flat smooth rubber soled shoes without heels.

Alternatively, you could go along to your local Club similarly attired and ask to have a trial go.

Most Clubs have practice bowls and a member willing to join you for a roll up.

There would be no obligation and they would be happy to see you.

This would also let you get to meet some of the members and whether you would like to join in the future.

Bowlers at Garndiffaith are a friendly lot.

So you have decided its for you

The next step is to decide which Club to join and to fill in an application form.

Bowling Clubs are not just about playing bowls there is much more to them and it is important that you feel comfortable with the members. After all you will be spending a lot of your time in their company.

First essentials

To get properly started you will require your own set of bowls not necessarily new.

And casual play wear as per the Club rules,

Normally white shirt or blouse and grey trousers or skirt, and of course proper bowling shoes.

You could be looking at spending assuming you buy secondhand bowls approx £120 on clothing and equipment.

Then you will have in your first year Club fees and Green fees perhaps another £30 or so. These are a rough guide of your initial outlay.
