What else are we up to..

Join us every Wednesday 14.00 - 16.00 at Muscliffe Park Petanque Club, Shillingstone Drive. Boules provided.

Leader, Chris Chubb.

Come ten pin bowling at Hollywood Bowl, (formerly Bowlplex), Branksome on Monday 1 April.

Just turn up promptly at 11.00 for a start at 11.15 - no need to book and by all means bring a friend, all welcome. You don't have to be an expert (none of us are!); it could even be your first attempt. Experience with us the agony (it's down the gutter) and occasionally the ecstasy (it's a strike!). No prizes, it's just good fun. If you don't feel like playing, just come along and watch and have a chat, we're easily distracted! Special bowling shoes are available to hire but ordinary footwear is perfectly acceptable. There is parking on site and lots of buses pass the door.

Being out of school holidays, we get a special concessionary rate of still just £3.10 a game.
