Horsham Bowls Club ready for action

AFTER a busy winter upgrading the premises and facilities and working hard on the bowling green, members of Horsham Park Bowls Club are eagerly looking forward to starting the forthcoming 2012 season.

Following their winter break from outdoor bowling, a successful Coffee Morning and Bring and Buy sale, held on Saturday 24th March, reunited many of the members who admired the newly upgraded facilities and applauded the hard work of the committee and officers and particularly David James, Premises Manager, and his team of willing workers, and Brian Hyde, the Greenkeeper.

The 2012 season commences with a Club Drive on Saturday 21st April followed by an Open Day on Sunday 22nd April. Visitors are welcome to come along on Sunday 22nd April between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. to meet up with members, find out more about the club and the sport and, maybe, have a go. You can be sure of a warm welcome at Horsham Park Bowls Club which provides free tuition, advice and ongoing support and has a ready supply of equipment for visitors to borrow. Enquiries from experienced bowlers are also welcome.

Horsham Park Bowls Club has a full programme of friendly matches against other clubs and also provides the opportunity for participation in competitive leagues and competitions both internally within the club and also in county leagues and county and national competitions. The club has a reputation for friendliness and also offers a wide selection of social activities throughout the year so that friendships made on the bowls green can be continued throughout the year. The Club’s social activities includes a strawberry tea, barbecue, candlelit bowling, kurling, beetle drives, quiz afternoons, Christmas lunch and presentation dinner.

The club has its own website which is regularly updated or enquiries can be made to 01403 255337 between 11.00 and 14.00 during the summer. Or contact Secretary, David Peters, on 01403 266170.
