Once the Application Form has been completed, contact the member that assisted you during the "Come and Try" and you will be helped through the necessary process (or someone in the club that you may already know).
Social Bowls
Now it's time to start your bowling experience and social activities within your club.

Social bowls are played in competition format every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday during winter. We also have Night Owls bowls on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings during daylight saving. A small fee applies for each event.
Please click here for more details.

You do not have to play every day. You might favour one event more than the other - it's up to the individual - but usually a good start is to play on Tuesday until you become familiar with the club.

Once you become confident you might want to give Pennant Competition a try.
