Coaching is an important part of any sport, not least bowls. A good coach organises, inspires, educates and supports players to reach their potential. This experience will look and feel different for bowlers depending on where they are in their playing journey from beginner to England player.

We had a very successful Pairs Challenge this afternoon. It was a delightful afternoon with the players putting their all into the challenge. There were loads of
Oohh’s and Aahh’s and applause at the near misses and great bowling on the rinks, and even the less experienced players took on the challenge of guiding there partners into the head and measuring!

Development – Two Wood Practice Session
We had a very successful 2 Wood practice session today. We had 12 competitors supported by some of our Club markers to make the game feel more like a genuine competition.
Each competitor played 10 ends against an opponent chosen randomly from a ‘lucky dip’ and then a further 10 ends where the Development Team matched up members with similar bowling abilities. We were surprised at some of the results and I think the members were too!
There will be another 2 Wood practice on Saturday 27th May from 12.00 – 2.00pm.
Coaching got underway today for members of the public who signed up on Open Day.
