Bowls is a game for any age and Harperbury Bowls Club prides itself on having bowlers from the ages of 10 - 90+, with concessionary rates for juniors and students.
Bowls is also a game that can be played by people with a wide range of disabilities and Harperbury Bowls Club is one of the few clubs in the area with a fully motorised specially adapted bowls wheelchair and we welcome people with disabilities.
If you do not wish to bowl, you can join Harperbury as an associate member. Associate Members participate in all the other social activities of the club.
It is easy to join Harperbury Bowls Club. Our Club afternoon / evening is Tuesday during the season (April - September) so just pop along to our green (location on the contact us page) and you will be given a warm weclome. You are also likely to find someone at the club most other days if Tuesday is not convenient.
Alternatively, contact Debbie Trollope, our membership secretary (details on our committee members page) and Debbie will make arrangements convenient to you to visit the club.
What Do I Need To Play Bowls?
The only thing you need to bring to start is a pair of flat, trainer type shoes (no heels). We have plenty of spair bowls of all sizes so you can try the game without any commitment.
Later on, if you take up the game you may wish to purchase a club shirt from us to wear in formal matches and eventually most players of the game like to purchase their own bowls; but that can all wait until a later stage.
Bowls is a very easy game to learn, although as many of us experience, can take a lifetime to perfect. Harperbury Bowls Club has qualified coaches, who, by appointment, can introduce new members to the basics of the game and will help more experienced bowlers to improve their skills or iron out flaws.
Early in the season Harperbury Bowls Club run some Bowls 4 Fun / Coaching sessions. See our fixtures list for dates.
Our coaches make no charge to Harperbury and prospective Harperbury members.
