You can enjoy bowls at any age and with no experience. It is a great way to stay active, engages the brain in tactical thinking and gameplay, as well as being good for posture, flexibility, balance and hand eye co-ordination. It’s also a great way to socialise with people in your community. A quick and easy way to get into bowling is to make contact with your local club from the list above, ask when you can have a go, and arrange for someone to show you how to play. Many of the clubs have social sessions each week so see if you could join one of those. You don’t need to have any experience at all and clubs can lend you the equipment required. All of the clubs also play in a wide range of league competitions throughout the outdoor season.

For those wishing to gain experience before venturing outside, Ryedale Indoor Bowls extends a warm welcome to both beginners and experienced bowlers. Up until April social sessions are held on Mon at 1.00 pm, Tue at 2.00 pm
and Thur and Sun at 10.30 am.

The social sessions are geared to accommodate all levels of skills and new bowlers can come along and enjoy 2 free taster sessions using equipment provided by the club. There is a varied weekly program of League bowling throughout the winter season and a reduced program of Tue and Thu social sessions at 10.30 am throughout the summer.
