to WHAT WE DO
Crown Green Bowling
Bowling is a sedate and gentle exercise excellent for those in their senior years. We are a very friendly group and we mix up so that everyone plays with different people each week. We have some laughter and fun as well as concentrating on our bowling.
Tuition can be arranged for newcomers by contacting the group leader in advance. After sufficient instruction a new bowler joins in with the rest to enjoy the social side of the game.
We meet at 10am on a Tuesday or Thursday at Torkington Park, Hazel Grove. We play until mid-day with a break for refreshment about half way through (which you bring yourself). Bowling takes place throughout the year as the park has a summer and a winter green. If there is a heavy frost or snow we are unable to bowl; we also do not play during heavy rain. There are bowls available at the green if you do not have your own.
Council bowls permits are required, which cover play for a year. The cost is £25 but they allow play on any of Stockport Council park greens. Permits are available at Hazel Grove or Marple libraries or information centres. You need to provide a passport size photo of yourself.
If you are interested in this group please see me at our monthly meetings, come along or contact me by e-mail.
