WHERE:Planet Leisure, 7-8 Maple Way, Newton Aycliffe DL5 6BF, UK
WHEN:1st Wednesday of the month 10 for 10.30 am but occasionally 2nd Wednesday as announced at the monthly meeting

10-pin Bowling will resume on Wednesday, 15th September with next game 6th October.

Bowling, companionship, laughter, and competition but no-one takes the game too seriously. Unlike some activities a high level of physical fitness is not required and those of us with issues such as arthritic hands, knees, etc. find our own way to get the ball down the lane to the pins. It’s good fun. Don't worry about not knowing how to play as the others in your group will help you. You don't even have to keep score as these days that is done electronically. We have 2 games every month followed by a hot or cold drink of choice and some social time. This is a lovely social group with a bit of light exercise thrown in.

The schedule is first Wednesday of the month but sometimes moves to the second Wednesday. It depends how the dates fall but January and September often slip a week to avoid the busy school holiday times. Dates are confirmed at the monthly meeting but Sheila usually messages group members as well. We meet any time after 10 am ready for a 10.30 start and use the time to chat, pay, and get shoes changed before the bowling. Afterwards we move to the café area for a drink and members generally leave around 12.30 pm. It's such good value for £4.95. If you would like to give this a try then please come along one month and see if you enjoy it.

If that's not enough to tempt you then this group also has a Christmas pub lunch after the December bowling!
