Bowls is a sport which combines physical exercise with a good social atmosphere. It is a wonderful sport for improving your flexibility and fitness whilst at the same time improving your social life by enjoying a chat with your team mates and other club members. There are also club social events during the year.
Members of the public can hire a rink for their own use by contacting
Epsom & Ewell Borough Council.
During the winter (September to April) many members play indoors at other local sites such as King George Field IBC in Chessington or the Rainbow Centre in Epsom.
