Ilfracombe welcomes new bowlers

Ilfracombe Bowling Club is holding a membership recruitment day this Sunday, starting at 2pm.

The club is keen to meet prospective players, men and women, and all will be made welcome for an introduction session. More women are particularly welcome as the club has been weakened by a few key players moving out of the area.

With bowls now experiencing a major boost countrywide, following recent television coverage highlighting that the sport is not just for the older person, Ilfracombe is hoping to get its fair share of new bowlers this summer at its Highfield Road green, said spokesman Neil Holloway.

All equipment and instruction will be provided, just wear comfortable clothing and flat soled shoes.
