For a beginner, all you need are a pair of shoes without heels (trainers will do) or you can play barefoot! The club has a variety of spare bowls available, including children’s bowls.

Most regular bowlers have their own set of bowls of the size and type that suits them best and we would ask that if you are playing regularly you obtain a dedicated set of shoes for protection of the green.

Tip: If you want your own set of bowls, they can often be found cheaply in charity shops or Gumtree.

Dress Code

There is no dress code for casual games and the club’s internal competitions so wear what you like!

For formal matches:

  • Gents: grey or black trousers, white shirt and sweater, club tie and blazer.
  • Ladies: grey skirt, white blouse.

(We do not as yet have a club polo shirt.)
