Opening day went very well, we even had some hardy souls taking to the green.
Roll ups will start on Tuesday 5th April (14.oo hrs) and will continue every Tuesday and Thursday until the end of the season.
Do not forget coaching sessions for beginners Wednesday mornings 10.30am.
Winter has almost gone Spring has sprung!!The opening of the green is on Saturday 2nd of April, the clubhouse will be open from 12.00hrs when the bar is open (not forgetting your free glass of wine) and hot dogs and burgers will be available for those who require nourishment.
For those wishing to bowl,weather permitting,will mean you are on the green approx 14.00hrs. We look forward to seeing all our members from last year and especially new members. King’s Lynn can meet the needs of all standards of bowlers, whether you are a complete novice or very experienced.
We run coaching courses for complete novices/beginners, social bowling for bowlers who do not want the competitive edge and league bowling for the more competitive.
The club will be open to all members (Boris permitting) on New Years Eve.If you fancy a social evening enjoying a quiet drink and a chat (food is available) come along. Much more enjoyable than watching the same old New Years rubbish on the television.
Our closing of the green was on Saturday 2nd October, unfortunately the weather did not allow any bowling. However I am sure everyone who was there thoroughly enjoyed Jane and Pat’s cream teas.
So that is it for 2021, a pretty successful year all things considered. We now look to 2022, opening of the green will be Saturday 2nd of April 12.00hrs. Looklng forward to seeing existing and new members, coaching for beginners is every Wednesday 10.30 am starting on Wednesday 13th April. Stay Safe and see you all next year.
