Full Bowling Membership:-
This entitles you to bowl all the year round, enter leagues, competitions and play in matches, as well as use all the facilities of the centre at any time.
Social members can use all the facilities of the Centre at any time of the year but if you would like to play bowls you should pay the small extra fee and add the Summer Bowling optional extra.
Social Membership + Summer Bowling:-
By adding the Summer Bowling extra facility you may play during the summer season, which is May to September. This is a good choice of membership for people trying out bowls for the first time – there are more rinks available in the summer which gives people a chance to learn more about the game and gain experience.
Assisted (plus social) Membership:-
Bowls is a ‘Sport for all’. It can and should be enjoyed by, and made accessible to, everyone. We are proud of our dedicated "Assisted Sessions" which started when the centre first opened in 1981. These runs every Friday from 09.30 to 12.00. We have bowlers who use wheelchairs, those who are partially sighted and others with physical limitations, all of whom are assisted by a group of volunteers. To learn more around the support we can provide to bowlers needing some form of assistance see here.
Junior Associate Membership:-
Our Junior Section is for under 18’s. There is no official lower age limit but we find, in practice, that around 6-7 is usually the youngest age that is suitable although this very much depends on the individual child. We meet on Saturday evenings from 5.30 to 8.00pm. The Junior Membership Fee is also available to under 21s in full time education.
