Sports - Ten Pin Bowling
This popular, lively group has many keen, regular players. We meet every Tuesday morning at 10 am for 10:30 start at Colchester TenPin, Cowdray Avenue, where there is free parking. Three games, drinks and biscuits (including shoe hire if needed, but not mandatory) cost just £5.
There is no limit to the number of players we can accommodate and attendance is usually around 25+ - ‘silly’ rewards such as stickers and sweeties for good scores, are compulsory incentives! However, bowling skills and expertise are not essential as these are primarily enjoyable experiences which have social as well as keep-fit benefits, although players are competitive and try to improve personal scores to reach the goals of 120 (gentlemen) and 115 (ladies).
We do not play during August to allow for school holidays but during other school breaks, we do play and meet one hour earlier (meet at 9 am to start play at 9:30) to ensure that there are enough lanes booked for us alongside the general public.
If you are interested in joining us, please contact the Group Leader via Bluebird contact on the right. Newcomers are very welcome.
As a bit of extra fun, top scores are recorded throughout the year, resulting in a winning Lady and Gent in December. Here are the winners Alison and David receiving their trophies at the end of 2019.
