Notice: Lawn Bowls For All Ages in Castle Grounds

The Castle Green Bowling Club will start its lawn bowls season at the end of April and continue through to the end of September in the grounds of Guildford Castle – a setting some consider to be the best in the county.

The club is keen to welcome new members.

Lawn bowls is an age-old sport for all ages from 12 years and up, with some players well into their eighties.

The Castle Green Bowling Club plays in what some consider to be the best setting in the county.

Coaching and spare bowls are provided for newcomers. It helps if you have played some other ball sport, but apart from that, all that is needed 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 also higher level competitions, both between local clubs and within the club itself – and good players even get to compete at county level.

Lawn bowls is a great old English game, not too strenuous, cheap to play compared with most other sports, and providing great company – and Castle Green Bowling Club often find themselves playing bowls to music when the bandstand is in use.

Coaching nights for newcomers to the club are on Mondays at 6pm. There will be an open day for  beginners and others on Wednesday, May 3, from 2pm to 7pm and further fun evenings for beginners on Monday evenings, May 8, 15, 22 and 29 from 4pm to 6pm. The first year fee is £35.

For further details, contact the club secretary Ann Lewis on 01483 449829 or visit
