Like myself, many of you will have walked past the bowls green in Evington Park without a moment’s thought of what actually goes on the other side of the barrier.
Crowded out by the park bushes and shelters provided, a lovely, almost carpet-type bowling green is hiding away out-of-sight and out-of-mind, crying out to be used.
As I did last Bank Holiday Monday, instead of walking past the green, why not broaden your horizons and pay the friendly and welcoming club a visit?
Open most days except for Thursdays and weekends due to match-days, the club is actively looking to improve its membership and regardless of age, background or physical appearance – anybody is welcome.
Usually divided into two-hour paid sessions from 10:30-12:30pm and 2-4pm, different members of the club staff the rota on different days and on Monday evenings the club have a “friendly role-up” type session for those who are interested in joining with the first three sessions for newcomers free of charge.
You can join and compete in matches for Evington Park Bowling Club or just to come along and try bowls
