Frequently Asked Questions

  • I’ve never played before. Can I try it out?

    Absolutely! Our Club’s dedicated coaches are available every Saturday morning from 9am – 11am to help new players get started. Just bring a pair of flat-soled shoes (to protect the greens) and you’ll be having loads of fun in no time.

  • I don’t have my own bowls. Can I still play?

    Of course! There are always extra sets of bowls available at the Club and the coach on duty will ensure that you can play even if you don’t have your own bowls.

  • What is the dress code?

    First-time players at the Saturday morning clinics can wear any comfortable clothes, as long as you wear flat-soled shoes. However, when playing competitions, “whites” or club colours are required.
