The fun day on Sunday 22nd July was in aid of the Youth Academy set up by Joy and Syd Steele of the Blandford Bowling Club. This youth section has gone from strength to strength with Joy and Syd doing their best to encourage all bowling clubs to have a youth section.
Originally Bridport were expecting the youngsters to bring their training equipment and carry out a short demonstration before allowing the Bridport members to “have a go”. Unfortunately due to the success of this young team, they were all engaged in competitions on that day so Syd was left to organise the day without their help.
You can see by the picture below that the members had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed working through the various disciplines/games which they found greatly helped their bowling skills. The cream tea which followed was also much appreciated.
Bowling is a great sport for all ages and abilities. The Bridport club is a very friendly club to belong to where members form a close bond and support each other not only when enjoying a game of bowls but in many other ways.
Should you be interested in learning how to bowl or simply would just like to give it a try, please do not hesitate to contact us through the website and we can arrange for you to visit at a time convenient to you.
Club Morning is on a Wednesday from 10.30 and you are always welcome to call in then for a chat.
