Bowls provides good, but not strenuous, exercise in a rewarding social context - so much so that Matlock Area U3A boasts two groups!

All groups play weekly, from early April until the end of September, on Monday mornings, from 10.00am until 12.00.

The 2017 season commences on Monday, 10 April.

Bowls Group "One" play on Matlock Golf Club's crown green, which is situated in an open, elevated position with splendid views and benefits from all the usual club facilities. We normally have about 15 bowlers (several of whom are beginners) each week who play in a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Experienced players provide tuition and guidance for beginners - spare bowls are available for borrowing. The cost of each session and refreshments will be advised by the coordinator.

Bowls Group1 coordinator is Elvee Hall, who can be contacted by telephone on 01629 57345.

 

Bowls Group "Two" play at the Matlock Bath Bowls Club.

The compact green is situated adjacent to the Grand Pavilion, has a sunny aspect and gives good views of Cat Tor. It is totally enclosed and is not impacted by passing tourists! For those members who prefer to use public transport, all the local buses stop just outside the Grand Pavilion or the Fishpond public house across the road.

Due to the size of the green there is a limit of 18 bowlers and 3 jacks in play during any one session.

The cost of each session and refreshments will be advised by the coordinator.

Bowls Group 2 coordinator is Mike Frosdick, who can be contacted by e-mail by clicking on his name, or by telephone on 01629 593833.

Did you know?

Bowls Group "Three" play at Wirksworth Bowls Club.

Following the success of the two established groups, a third group is to be started in April, playing at the same time on Monday mornings.

The group is open to beginners and some members of the other two groups may wish to transfer, if Wirksworth is more convenient for them. More details will be published before the season starts.

To register interest please contact Diane Frosdick by clicking on her name or by telephone on 01629 593833.
