Tourists and visitors, or those living at least 25 miles from the club, can join for £25. Please note that members do not pay extra for playing in local leagues, or for the club's In-house competitions and events (excluding Jumbles).

Visiting bowlers can play for £3 on the day, depending on the availability of a member to open the premises to give access to equipment. Casual visitors are requested to attend a taster session (to be arranged), but if this is not possible, please use the Contact Us page to request a scheduled visit. The club holds annual Bowls England sponsored Open Days for new bowlers to try the sport. To date, we have been successful in recruiting new members.
