Bowls Club

 

Carpet Bowls is very similar to green bowls but it is played indoors on a special carpet
marked out with jack positions and lines from which the wood is bowled.

The club at Ludwick Way came about after a major renovation in the 1990s.
One of the Church members asked if the new crush area carpet would be suitable to play on
so we tried it out and found it was.

The club meets every Thursday afternoon and has become a very popular social
as well as competitive time for our twenty or so members.
We have bought our own sets of bowls
and we have a proper carpet, which was kindly donated
by Shenley Roman Catholic Church of the Good Shepherd.

Anyone is welcome to join the fun even if you do not bowl.
There is a small charge of to cover the cost
of heating, lighting and refreshments during the afternoon.
Any excess funds are either donated to charity
or used to buy gardening equipment or plants for the church.
