Ewell Village Bowling Club
Many of us think of lawn bowling as an older persons pastime – well there are many senior members but bowling is a sport which can be enjoyed by all regardless of age or ability or sex. If you watch the various competitions shown on the TV – you will see a varying range of ages taking part.
Just recently Katheine Rednall became Ladies World Champion at the ripe old age of 16 – and many clubs are looking to encourage younger players.
It is quick to learn – it allows you to develop your individual skill – it keeps you fit – relatively inexpensive to play - and yes – it can be competitive!
And another very important thing – it is very sociable – a great opportunity to meet new people.
We have all passed lawn bowls grounds and seen the players decked out in their whites – but have you ever stopped and watched them play? Try it some time – it is very interesting to watch as the players discuss tactics – see their individual styles – see the intense concentration as they prepare for their shot – and notice the comeraderie amongst them.
Most clubs partake in league matches – but playing in these is not compulsory.
Ewell Village Bowling Club – is a classic English club. It was established in 2011 when Ewell Bowling Club and Ewell Ladies Bowling Club joined – but their history goes back much further – back to the 1930’s – so that’s nearly 80 years of bowling in Ewell.
They are actively encouraging younger players by launching a training programme for the bouys at Glyn School. Over a six week period they will be coaching 12 boys, taking them through the basics, the laws, the etiquette and the finer points of competitive play.
