Open Bowls Weekend - From Bude to Porthleven


Never tried bowls?  This is the time to find out what it's all about!

Bowls clubs across Cornwall are opening their doors to their local communities for anyone to turn up and have a go free of charge.

During the Easter weekend of Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th April and also during the month of May, Bowls Clubs in partnership with the Cornwall Sports Partnership and The Cornwall Bowls Alliance are offering free sessions for anyone to turn up whatever their age and have a go.
