A Beautiful Game Needs Reviving


You may ask what Shipton Bowls Club can offer in today‚Äôs climate of virtual reality and armchair participation?  Well we have a lovely club with good facilities and an excellent green, in beautiful surroundings, with friendly members.  We have members with the expertise to encourage and coach newcomers to the game of Flat Green Lawn Bowls.  There is the opportunity to play at any level you wish, be it socially, bowling in the varying ability leagues, or progressing to County and even National level.  The game is your oyster!

The future of the game of bowls and the existence of this type of facility within the village community is in your hands.  It is YOUR Club in YOUR community, the present committee and members are merely custodians of the present era.  The game is a game that all the family can play and at whatever level you choose to try.  It is on your doorstep and provides a gentle overall exercise in fresh air.  Give it a try and even if you do not take to the game itself assistance is always welcomed and helps to form part of a vibrant community.

Age is no barrier and you do not have to be super fit to play.  Who knows the game of bowls could be for you but you will not know until you give it a try.  New members are required at all levels to keep this facility going and any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.  If you have any questions why not give our Club Treasurer, John Backhouse a ring on 07786087098.
