The U3A Bowling Group has now been running for five years on a Monday afternoon. We have an arrangement with East Horsley Bowling Club to use their Green and facilities which are set in a splendid quiet local setting.

        WOULD YOU LIKE TO TRY YOUR HAND !

All you need is casual clothes and flat soft soled shoes. The Bowls and all equipment will be supplied to us along with tuition.

We have a very friendly Group and will welcome new members, It is certainly a Sport for all ages, with the added advantage of maintaining regular fitness in the open air and meeting with like minded people from the Club and the U3A.

Did you Know ?

History reveals that the oldest UK Bowling Green still played on is in Southampton, and has been in continuous use since 1299.

The most famous historical link with the sport recorded is that of Sir Francis Drake of Spanish Armada fame. As on July 15th 1588 he is reported as saying “his game of Bowls upon Plymouth Hoe had to be completed before he transferred himself to the Man O War sailing ship to engage the enemy” The War was won although he lost the Bowls game.

Should you be interested in this sporting pursuit and joining our U3A Group and wish to obtain further information, please contact the Group Leader Mary who will be pleased to hear from you.

The Season starts on Monday the 9th May until September.
