SOLIHULL Bowling Club are holding an open day this Sunday, and invite newcomers and long-time players to their bowling green.
After the traditional ceremony to formally raise the flag and open the 2019 crown green bowling season took place at the club recently, with club president Edward Legg doing the honours, the club wish to see in the new campaign with a number of fresh faces in their ranks.
Members are invited to play regardless of ability, experience or age, with the club hosting men’s, ladies’ and juniors bowls seven days a week a their Ramada Solihull home, nearby to the town centre.
The club’s bowling green is reputed to be one of the oldest in the country, potentially going back 600 to 700 years.
Its setting and location have been recognised by Solihull Council – who have listed the site on the list of buildings of ‘Special Architectural or Historic Interest’ in the area.
Offering members the use of the stunning facilities at the hotel, which include a terraced seating area, dining and conference facilities, and a traditional Indian gourmet restaurant all on site, the draw for members is more than worth the full adult membership fee of £70 for the 2019 season.
A full programme of events taking place at the club until mid-October is set to start in the coming weeks, with mid-week competitive leagues, social bowling and internal club competitions held throughout the bowling calendar.
In addition to bowling, the family friendly club play host to a number of social gatherings throughout the year, hosting lunches, quiz nights, an annual dinner and a prize-giving ceremony.
The club’s open day is held between 12 noon, and 3pm, for anyone willing to view the facilities.
