About Bowls Taster Sessions and Coaching

Please view this 2 minute video inviting you to give bowls a try at Atherley

We offer a 1 hour free individually tailored taster session, just so you can give bowls a try... completely without obligation. To book a session just click on the BOOK NOW link below, complete your details and we will be in touch. It is also an opportunity to have a look round the facilities we offer at our great club.

Don't worry if you do not have shoes or bowls - we can provide these, all you you need do is to come along in comfortable smart casual clothing.


After that it's up to you to decide whether to continue. 

Further free coaching is available, but not obligatory if you decide to join us.



Club Coaching

We have a team of Coaches on hand to help new bowling players on their way, so that they can soon join in with established bowlers on the Green.

There are regular bowling drives run by coaches held each week both indoors and out, please look at our Social Page for more information.

"My Biggest regret is not taking up the game of bowls earlier"


"My biggest regret is not taking up the game of bowls sooner."

"From a young boy I have always been intrigued by the game,  but it  wasn't until 2015 that I finally made enquiries.

After a tour of the Club and a free try at bowls, I was hooked.

"My biggest regret is not taking up the game of bowls sooner.  It really has exceeded my expectations in so many ways. I love the competitive side of the game, as well as the social aspect. I would encourage anyone who has an interest in sport or looking to take up a hobby, to give it a try as soon as possible."

"What I like about bowls is that anyone can play it. It doesn’t matter how young or old you are, how fit you are, what sex you are, it’s a game that really is for everyone. At the Atherley it’s a game that you can play all year round - both the indoor and outdoor games are so different that it keeps you interested and challenged.

"The club itself is fantastic and I only have positive words to say about it and my fellow members. From the moment I joined, I have loved every minute of it. Aside from the game itself, I have made so many great friends of all ages. It’s like one great big family, everyone is just so friendly and helpful.

"After I joined I took the opportunity to have a couple of free coaching lessons which helped me understand the game and the basics. For anyone joining, you can have as little or as much coaching as you feel you need as the coaches at the club are always happy to help. Again, it’s just down to the individual as to how serious a member wants to play the game as all levels are welcome."
