Indoor Bowling Club

The village indoor bowling group have been meeting every other Thursday in the Watson Institute since 2003. We never know how many people are likely to attend – it can be up to 8 or 9 bowlers. Only once can we remember not playing due to low numbers (when only 2 attended!).

We choose teams by drawing from a pack of cards – so we’re not playing the same members each meeting. We don’t necessarily abide strictly to all the rules – bowls is supposed to be a quiet, sedate sort of game – but not ours! We can be quite noisey, especially when the floor board ridges give the bowl a little “wobble”. To counteract this, we place the mat slightly askew across the floor – but it doesn’t always work!

We have a break at half time for tea, coffee and biscuits. A good time is had by all, with lots of friendly banter.
