We are always looking for new people to take up bowls, men and women, and it’s really very easy. And if you’ve not played before, it’s cheap as well: you only pay £25 in the first year rather than the full subscription of £100. 

Our Taster Day for 2024 will actually be a Taster Weekend: Saturday 20th & Sunday 21st April, 10:00 - 13:00 each day. Just turn up to receive an introduction to bowls from our coaches and other experienced players - no booking required. We provide the bowls and other equipment. Just wear flat-soled shoes (please – no sandals, for safety reasons. A bowl travelling at speed packs quite a punch). We'll also provide free tea, coffee and biscuits.

Club Nights are usually on a Tuesday evening, except when the green is needed for league matches, when it shifts to Friday. This occurs only rarely and we'll post those dates when we know them. You will find a full list of Club Nights here.

You won’t need specialist bowls clothing straight away, not until you represent the club in friendlies or league matches. Then you’ll need club shirts and grey or white trousers or skirts.

If you’re uncertain about anything, you can contact our club secretary first: Andrew Phillips, Phone 01208 814871 or 07762 433863, Email

Bowls has an image of being for older people, and many of our members do fit into that category. Playing can keep you active and engaged for many years – we have several players well into their 80s. But if you watch bowls on television, you’ll see that the top players are younger, and may well have started in their teens, as several of our own top players did. And amongst our best players currently we have two who represented Cornwall U-25s at the National Finals in Leamington Spa in recent years. You can’t be too young or too old to play – don’t let age be a barrier.

Once you get going, you’ll find a lot of useful information about how the club works on our ‘General Information’ page.
