Club to bowl over new members with open day

IF you are looking for something new to do with your family and friends, why not head on down to the come and try day at the Jindalee Bowls Club.

The club is inviting the south-west community to come and have a go at the game on Sunday, July 24, from 10am-3pm.

Jindalee Bowls Club chairman Betty Faux said professional coaches and players would be on hand to teach visitors how to play the game.

"The day is for anyone and everyone who would like to come down and have a go," she said.

"We hope that this event will spark some interest with others in the community who would possibly like to play the game on a more regular basis.

"We would love to see some younger people join the club," she said.

"It's ok if you haven't played before because we will have coaches and players here to show you the basics of the game," she said.

Ms Faux said bowls was becoming quite popular with younger people for special events.

"Yes, barefoot bowls is quite popular with young people for events such as engagement parties," she said.

"It's a very social game so people can mingle with their guests while also playing the game.

The day will be barefoot bowls, but if the weather is cold, socks or thongs will also be permitted.

The club's bar and facilities will all be open on the day.

The Jindalee Bowls Club is located on Sinnamon Rd, Jindalee.

If you would like to know more about the come and try day, telephone the club on 33761240.
