Lawn Bowls is a competitive sport which dates from the 12th century, which is easy to learn, provides gentle healthy exercise as well as pleasant social company for people of all ages. After a successful Adult Come and Try Lawn Bowls programme led by Sligo Sport and Recreation Partnership at the new Sligo Lawn Bowls Facility, a steering committee of local bowling enthusiasts was developed, who have been working towards developing Sligo’s first Lawn Bowls Club. The club committee are now looking forward to celebrating a great sporting milestone for Sligo, as they prepare to launch on Saturday 15th July at 11.30am, where they hope to welcome club members, guests, local bowling enthusiasts or anyone interested in Lawn Bowls and wants to know more about the game.
Activities on the day include an exhibition game with Sligo Lawn Bowls Club players, followed by ‘Come & Try Lawn Bowls Sessions’ allowing people a chance to have a go. All equipment will be provided. All that is required is to wear wear flat soled shoes.
Access to the facility is via the main car park in Cleveragh Regional Park, which is located across the road from Sligo Regional Sports Centre.
The club currently meet every Saturday morning 10.30am-12noon, Tuesdays 7-9pm and Thursdays 7-9pm. New players always welcome. Why not come along!
This facility and club development project is part of the Sligo Sport and Recreation Partnership East City Community Sports Hub initiative funded by Sport Ireland under Dormant Accounts and supported locally by Sligo County Council and Cranmore Regeneration.
