“The more I practice, the luckier I get”

                             That quote has been attributed to several sports stars, mainly golfers

                             such as Gary Player, Arnold Palmer and Jerry Berber amongst others,

                             but at the heart of the matter is that practice, if not making perfect,

                             will make you a better sportsman and certainly a better bowler


                                             Members are welcome to practice on the green.

                            We have bowls coaches who will be happy to help members progress.
