Taking to the green to inspire new bowlers

Kirkintilloch Bowling Club is one of around 200 across Scotland taking part in Bowls Scotland’s Try Bowls campaign this summer.

The clubs have signed up to the campaign launched during the Glasgow 2014 Games to get more people of all ages playing bowls.

Over 100 bowling clubs capitalised on the heightened post Games interest in the sport by offering Try Bowls last summer. And as a result many clubs across the country reported increases in membership.

Bowls Scotland is leading Try Bowls by helping clubs spread the word in their communities, providing posters for clubs to advertise locally, and creating a website to help people easily locate their local participating club.

Try Bowls 2015 officially starts this weekend. For more information on Try Bowls visit: www.trybowls.com
