One of the many activities taking place at the centre is the little-known but nevertheless fascinating sport of Indoor Bowls. Relying on skill and precision, rather than pure strenght, it appeals to all ages and abilities. It is played with exactly the same bowls as the better-known outdoor game of Lawn Bowls, but played on special mats, rather than grass. It’s not a ‘pasttime for pensioners’, as some might think, but a popular, fully-fledged, all-year international sport and was included in the recent Commonwealth Games, where several of the medallists were in their early twenties. There are hundreds of clubs throughout the county participating in many tournaments, league and national competitions over the Winter months!

So why not give it a try?
