Playing bowls is for everyone – regardless of age, sex and ability. It doesn’t take
long to learn, and really can be played by anyone, but if you want to play well then
like anything else it requires practice and concentration.
People are often surprised at the skill needed to play this quintessentially British game
well, but it is worth it. It's a great game which can be very sociable and what better way to
spend a sunny summer afternoon?
If you've not played before but are interested in finding out more about the game, contact us
and have a go.
If you are an experienced bowler and are looking for a competitive Club, you could do no
better than Andover Bowling Club. We are now one of the most successful Clubs in our
area; we also benefit from our location, being able to take part in three leagues,
Basingstoke & District, Whitchurch & District and Salisbury and District.
Over the last few years our Club has had an excellent entry of new members, most of whom have never played bowls before; it's been great to see quite a few of them taking part in club competitions with some getting into the finals.
Because we are very keen to encourage new bowlers to the sport and of course, to our Club, we do plenty to support them and believe the following initiatives, together with the friendly atmosphere, have played a part in attracting so many to join us.
A totally new bowler has a fantastic 50% reduction on the annual subscription for the first year. We have our own club coaches, plus a valuable mentor/buddie scheme in operation, where one of our experienced bowlers is assigned to the new player to give practical help and advice on all aspects of the game and the Club. We have produced two booklets full of helpful information to assist new bowlers.
On Tuesday nights we have a Club Night; the bowling is good fun. There is usually a prize for the winner, and it’s a lovely way to learn about the game and to meet other Club Members.
During the winter we have a club social evening once a month which is very well attended.
Full Annual membership is £84.00 but is offered to new bowlers, again this year at a 50% reduction of the standard fee, at only £42.00.
Associate Members can enjoy watching the games, have a drink in the Clubhouse, and join in any Social events for a fee of £8.00
If you are interested in becoming a member we'd love to hear from you.
