Two open days have been organised by Winscombe Bowling Club in April and May.

Winscombe Bowling Club is holding open days on April 29 and May 27 between 10am and 3pm.

Everyone is welcome to give this great social game a try. Bowls is a sport which attracts both young and old, men and ladies, boys and girls playing at a competitive level or just for fun.

Winscombe boasts one of the finest greens in the county with experienced coaches able to assist any beginner to reach a high standard of play. You will meet other bowlers who will be more than happy to explain the game and assist with instruction.

Age is no obstacle and Winscombe have a 17-year-old who plays for the Somerset under-25s team and has been playing since he was nine, so bring the kids along to have a go.

Come and enjoy a cuppa, have a chat and try the game using our wonderful facilities. All you need is some flat soled shoes or trainers.

However, if you are not able to attend on these dates, contact Robin Lowman on 01275 874850 or Paul Fredersdorff on 01934 822240, who can arrange for free coaching on an alternative day.

There is also a social programme of activities running throughout the year.
