FAQs

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

A: Absolutely! Our Club’s dedicated coaches are available most Saturday mornings from 9am – 11am to help new players get started. Please book. Just bring a pair of flat-soled shoes (to protect the greens) and you’ll be having loads of fun in no time. Check out About Us page for the coaches’ numbers or send a mail to the club secretary.

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

A: 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.

Q: What is the dress code?
