THREE WEEK COURSE

Designed to give a comprehensive introduction to bowls – enabling a newcomer to gain the skills and knowledge to join, enjoy and take a full part in the Rushcliffe Indoor Bowls Club.

Three weeks of two-hourly sessions cover:

* the game, the rink and equipment

* a demonstration of suggested simple warm up activities

* an explanation of the bowls and some other equipment

* the correct grip and delivery and why it is important

* a description and practice of bowls shots

* activities to help you improve

* some rules and the importance of etiquette

* practice games

Casual dress is OK but you will need flat soled shoes or thick socks.  You can borrow bowls at the Arena. Bowls is a suitable game for almost any age – from about nine years old upwards (ie when the child can handle ‘junior’ sized bowls).

Our coaches, Fran Lloyd, Michael Chamberlain and Kath Drew, are Bowls England / English Indoors Bowls Association  qualified coaches and can help new and existing bowlers alike. Fran and Michael also have experience of disability bowls coaching.

The cost will be £30 each  … dates to be fixed when numbers are known.   Please leave your name and contact details at the Club Desk or Reception for more details.
