What to wear?
Shoes – Flat soled bowling shoes must be worn. These shoes should not be worn to arrive in.
We do have a club shirt which must be worn for all club matches. For leagues, points, early stages of competitions and roll-ups a white shirt and grey trousers or skirts are required. Ladies do have a turquoise/green cardigan while men wear white “snowballs”.
Our playing surface is expensive and we do have to treat it with respect. We have started by asking that the flat shoes your wear to bowl in are not used to run out to the car to get something you forgot.
We also remind you that the use of Grippo, glycerine and rose water and suchlike are not permitted.
