Lawn bowls – for all ages

GLASSHOUSE Country Bowls Club games director Dave Hayes reckons lawn bowls is the perfect sport the whole family can enjoy together.

Dave says it’s a great way for people of all ages and abilities to have fun and stay active in a friendly and social setting.

On Sunday October 10 the club will host a free come-and-try day from 11am–1pm. Club members will be on hand to give a few tips, and bar and dining options will be available throughout the day.

Whether you fancy having a competitive go or an easy-going social game in a supportive and friendly atmosphere, lawns bowls may be the new hobby for you.

Dave says one of the great things about the sport is that it’s easy on the body but still offers enough challenges for those wishing to extend their game skills.

“We love seeing the grandkids come along and play alongside their grandparents, and it’s a great game the whole family can enjoy, suitable for ages 10-110,” Dave said.

To encourage more families to get involved, juniors (up to age 18) who join the club will get free membership for the first year, with coaching available through the week.

As well the social aspect, the club also has a competitive side where individual and team members enter representative competitions.
