Blaby Bowling Club - Free Coaching for Kids and Families

Blaby Bowling Club – Free coaching for kids and families.

Bowls, it’s an old person’s game isn’t it? NOT REALLY.

Across Leicestershire and the UK there’s a thriving community of bowlers from primary school age to senior citizens.

It’s a competitive sport, as no doubt you’ll see in the Commonwealth Games this summer, but it’s also great fun, relaxing and of course, a decent bit of exercise.

Blaby Bowling Club is one of the most successful bowling clubs in Leicestershire and, with the support of our local councils, is introducing a free coaching programme this year.
There’s a programme of courses to sign up for below, but we are also after new adult members too. If you haven’t bowled before and fancy a go, we’ll provide a bespoke taster session for you on our fantastic bowling green.
