Nailsea Bowls Club’s Open Day, part of Bowls England’s Bowls Big Weekend, saw over 40 prospective bowlers trying out lawn bowls and having fun over two sessions on Sunday afternoon.
The guests were warmly welcomed, sized with the correct bowl size and the bowling rinks were laid out with fun challenges ready for them to experience lawn bowls.
The weather was perfect with both refreshments and the bar being well patronised. All guests appeared to have an enjoyable experience with many staying on for a chat to and to enquire about coaching sessions.
These are held on Monday nights from 6.30-8pm and will be free throughout June. Anyone interested in trying out bowls can ‘have a go’.

David Stott, Board Member of Disability Bowls England, dropped in to the event to offer support with any issues relating to bowls for the disabled.
He said: “I was immediately impressed with the sizeable crowd of people attending – of all ages. The activities laid on had obviously taken a great deal of effort and organisation by the club and everyone was thoroughly enjoying themselves.
"As a result of the club’s links with local primary education, there were many families present, just going to show that bowls is definitely ‘the sport for all’."
