 Isn't it time you tried  the

Oxford City & County Indoor Bowls Experience?

Just come along to Oxford City & County Bowls Club on a Tuesday Night between 6-8pm for our Coaching Session. Casual Clothes, we can supply Bowls, Shoes and Enthusiastic help!

 

Why not take up bowling? It is a sport that's good for you - physically, mentally and socially. And don't run away with the idea that it's only for older people: it's for both young and old. Members of the national team are mostly between 20 and 40 years of age!  And you can play all year round indoors or, in summer, both indoors and outdoors. We cater for you if you just want to "roll up" with friends, if you want to play in club friendly games or if you want the thrill of competitive matches at different levels: club, county, national. Also, all year round, you can enjoy the bar and the varied social life of the club

 
Try it out with us. We are able to lend you all the equipment you will need, including bowls and shoes, so you can quickly start enjoying the sport without any significant initial expense.
 
Adults are welcome to try one of our free taster sessions. For adult coaching there is a fee of £3.50 per 2 hour session. One of our team of qualified coaches will be glad to talk to you about the opportunities the club offers; don't hesitate to telephone the Office on:-          01865 554334
 
 
Youngsters aged 8 and upwards are welcome at the Saturday Youth Club, catering for a wide range of ability from beginners to accomplished bowlers and using the six rink indoor green in the winter and one of the two six-rink outdoor greens in the summer. Junior-sized bowls are available. No fee.
 
If you are thinking about taking up the sport and at any stage you want to become familiar with some of its rules and conventions, you can get a lot of information easily on the Internet. For example the BBC has an interesting page (click here). Bowls Australia has an interesting website also.
 
Please Note! Like most Bowls Clubs, we try to keep costs down for the benefit of Members. This means that The Office is not open 24/7 but has limited hours. Sometimes the Telephone might be answered by a member of the Club. I am sure you will find them very friendly and they will do their best to answer all your queries.

 Give a person a set of Bowls and he will put them in a cupboard. Teach a person how to play Bowls and they will find a whole new life.

Balls. We kick them, we throw them at people with bats, and we'll even walk for miles across the countryside to whack them into tiny holes.

 

But how about a game where our spherical friends curve?
