There are two chances to try out the sport of lawn bowls at high profile venues which have connections with two of the most distinguished exponents - Dr W. G. Grace and David Bryant CBE. W.G the fearsomely bearded cricketer who was the first President of the English Bowling Association in 1903, used to play at Bristol Arrow, who are the oldest club in Bristol. The club holds an Open Day on Saturday, and will welcome visitors from 10.30 am. ‘All ages are welcome’ says club stalwart Ann White.
The club’s youngest member, Charlie Haynes, has been included in Gloucestershire’s 2017 Under 25 Middleton Cup squad, while 18-year-old Matt Bartlett is vice-captain of the club.
The club can be found next to Bannatynes Leisure Centre at the bottom of Redland Road.
