Woodborough Carpet Bowls Club

Free Taster Evening

Woodborough Carpet Bowls Club meets every Friday evening at 7.20pm in Woodborough Village Hall.

Carpet bowls is played indoors on special floor mats, using smaller and lighter bowls than outdoor bowls, and is easily mastered even if you’ve never played before.

We don’t take our playing too seriously but concentrate more on having a pleasant evening with friends (we currently have a membership of around 30).

If you’d like to give carpet bowls a try why not take advantage of our free “Taster Evening” on Friday 19th January. We’ll be happy to show you the ropes and you can be sure that our existing members will make you welcome!

Why not start your new year with a new interest – if you’d like to come along, or just find out more, please call Kate on 965 2376.
