If you are reading this and wondering if bowls is for you then please do get along to Dunkeswell on that first Saturday in May. Both at the club and also at the Throgmorton Hall on the day, there will be various sized woods for newcomers to try and also coaches on hand to instruct in the noble sport of bowls.

Bowling is excellent gentle exercise, suitable for men and women, young and old. The sport offers the chance to engage in activities in the fresh air and all that is required is a pair of flat bottom shoes.

Dunkeswell Bowls Club looks forward to welcoming new members this season.
