Hang on a minute! Isn’t that a dull game played by old people?
Well, it’s true that the game has been traditionally loved and enjoyed by our more senior members of society, but the perception of ‘geriatric marbles’ is now very much outdated, with the sport and its demographic rapidly changing.
Bowls is now increasingly popular amongst the younger generations who are discovering an interesting, tactical sport that is highly social, great fun and which anyone can play. New formats of the game also make the sport appealing to those with busy lifestyles.
During October, clubs throughout Auckland are offering “Have A Go Days” where you are invited to get along to your local club to check out the club facilities, learn about bowls and have a go.
Our local club, Blockhouse Bay Bowls, will be holding Have A Go days every Sunday during October. No need to book, simply turn up at the club, 33 Terry St, between 1-4pm, or just contact the club on 626 6450 or firstname.lastname@example.org and arrange to visit. All you need is a pair of flat shoes.
So, try something new this summer, Have A Go at Lawn Bowls and let the good times roll!
