I recently joined Herts Bowling Club, never having bowled before, and have found the members to be friendly and encouraging when I’ve joined them in the roll-up. Too early to comment on the social side of the club but have taken advantage of, and enjoyed, the catering and bar facilities after playing.

At a recent new members session at the Club, I mentioned that I hadn’t received the introductory lessons on offer to new members and to date, have heard nothing more about these. I feel these would be invaluable to a beginner to better understand the game.
