Bowling

Short Mat Bowling

Leader: Jenny Gaskill Tel: 01604 634257
Deputy: Neil Clements Tel: 01604 714611

We meet at the Camp Hill Community Centre every Tuesday, (except the last Tuesday of every month, when the U3A meeting is held) at 1.45pm to allow time for changing shoes etc., to commence play at 2.00pm until 4.00pm.

Short mat bowling was first started in 2006 by Mr J Smith and as from there has gone from strength to strength.

It's a very relaxing sport that anyone can enjoy summer or winter.

No real skills are required, just practice and a few friendly words from our skippers.

Bowling is held every week at Camphill Community Centre ( as above ) at 2.00 pm until 4.00 pm where everyone has a great time, with a break at half time to enjoy Tea and Biscuits and a good natter.

Requirements are that flat shoes are to be worn (no heels etc.)

All other equipment is supplied by the Community Centre, such as the carpet, mats and bowls.

This is a pleasant afternoon with a cuppa for bowlers of mixed ability. There is a small charge to cover the cost of the hall.

Any further information can be obtained from the group leader by phone or use the email link on the top right.

Do you measure up for a game with us ?

Ten Pin Bowling

Leader: Brian Adams Tel: 01604 403060

YOU ARE NEVER TOO OLD TO BOWL….THAT’S TEN PIN BOWLING WITH NORTHAMPTON U3A AT SIXFIELDS

The Northampton U3A has a ten pin bowling group and we meet each month (except August, because of school holidays) and everybody is invited.

It’s held on the second Thursday each month at 2pm, at Tenpin, Sixfields in Northampton. Please contact the Group Leader direct if you have any questions, otherwise just turn up… we look forward to meeting you.

Because we’ve joined as a club, the cost currently is £6:45 (July 2018) for two games (all in), which is terrific value compared to normal rates and if you fancy a drink whilst playing, there is a bar.

Put your mind at rest if you are unsure about your abilities, this game is for everybody….you can even `close the gutters`, so every ball will nearly always knock down some pins. What other activity can promise near 100% success, not be impacted by the weather and generates a fantastic opportunity to have a chat, improve your health through activity and allow you a bit of friendly competition.

So don’t think about it….do it, join us on the second Thursday in the month at 2pm …its good company, good fun and a good game.
