The Castle Green Bowling Club starts its lawn bowls season at the end of April and continues through to the end of September in the grounds of Guildford Castle.

Members are hosting a free open day for beginners and others from 2pm to 6pm on Saturday, May 9, followed by free fun evenings for beginners from 6pm to 7.30pm on Mondays, May 11, 18 and 25 and on Monday June 1.

Castle Green Bowling Club welcomes new players.

The club says lawn bowls is an age-old sport for all ages, from around 10 years old and upwards – and with some players well into their eighties.

Coaching and spare bowls are provided for newcomers, and the first year fee is £42.50.

It helps if you have played some other ball sport, but apart from that, all you need is a good eye, the ability to bend and stretch, the stamina to last through a three-hour long game, and a pair of flat-soled shoes to protect the green.

Friendly games are usually played midweek or on Saturdays or Sundays against local clubs, but there are higher level competitions as well, both between local clubs and within the club itself. Good players even get to compete at the county level.

Bowls is cheap to play compared with some other sports, and can provide great company.

Castle Green members often find themselves playing to music when the bandstand is in use!

Regular coaching nights for newcomers are Monday nights at 6pm.
