Bowling Group

Crown Green Bowling
    Bowling is a sedate and gentle exercise recommended by many GP's as a sport for those in their senior years.
    Like many games it looks easy when watching those with years of practice and skill.  However, it can be a bit like driving a car at first, so many things to think of at the same time.

bowling a long jack!finger peg! That's our Thumb then!

Don't let that put you off, we are a very friendly group and we mix up so that people play with different people each week.  We have some laughter and fun as well as concentrating on our bowling.

 who's closest partner?
   The weekly meetings commence at 10.00 and we play until mid day with a break for refreshment about half way through (which you bring yourself).
We have a qualified Bowling Instructor who will assist any newcomer in the rudiments of the art!!!Go on give it some welly!
   After sufficient instruction the new bowler joins in with the rest and begins to enjoy the social side of our game.
   We meet on a Thursdays at Torkington Park (near the Rising Sun pub) and a small charge of £1.00 is made to cover the hire of the green.  There are Bowls available for use at the green where necessary and when you feel like buying your own we will give you advice on what would be the correct woods for you.
   We have a couple of social events, the highlight being a coach trip which includes bowls, lunch and a short time forOne to us then! shopping
   Does this interest you?  If so you would be welcome any Thursday morning. However, I do suggest that if you are a complete beginner it would be better to wait until May when the weather becomes a little warmer.
   If you have problems with transport it is possible to arrange for lifts with people living in your area and of course the bus fare is free to the over 60's and there is a bus stop nearby

Club Outing!

On the 21st September we embarked on a Bowling Bonanza to ‘Cheshire View’ at Christleton near Chester.
I can say without hesitation it was a “Purrfec” Day thanks to the efficient organisation, this together with the lovely sunny  weather resulted in the 30 strong group being in a fun mood all day.

The Cheshire View gave us excellent service with morning coffee, a buffet lunch, an afternoon ‘cuppa’ and in the evening a tasty well-cooked dinner.

In the Bowling competition Sheila Burke and Margaret Dodd were joint ‘Top Ladies’ and Dave Smith was ‘Top Man’  and they and others received prizes.

After Dinner Margaret Meekley gave Ken & Edna a well deserved vote of thanks and then we were homeward bound, still lively enough to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to Sheila and Brian who I am sure will remember their 2006 birthdays as a very delightful day.
