It’s a low-impact, therapeutic gentle way to get active

You won’t realise how much walking you do until you actually play it. You can walk three miles while you’re playing. You’re only doing 30m stints at a time, but you’re doing a lot of them. On top of the walking, your arms will get a workout as you perfect your bowling technique and your leg muscles will develop as you lunge into the throw.

It’s perfect for all

Bowls truly is the sport for all, regardless of age, sex or physical ability. The gentle pace and lack of contact means you’ll often find children playing with adults and people of different abilities and fitness levels on the same team. Despite what you might think, it’s not just a sport for retirees. The general bowler is over 55 but we have under-25s and under-18 players as well.”

There’s a social side

There is a lot of socialising and you don’t have to be competitive to play. Croydon Bowls & Sports Club put on regular social functions, quizzes, events, theatre trips and outings. There are also opportunities to join the club committees or volunteer in the day-to-day running of the club. If you just want to play with your friends in the afternoon, there’s nothing stopping you. You can have a cuppa or even breakfast or lunch in the Club’s restaurant or a drink in our comfortable, well-stocked bar – at very reasonable prices.
