Welcome to Torquay Bowling Club

Simon Bray Presentation

Simon Bray Wealth Management are giving a presentation on the effects of inflation, why investing makes sense and a post budget discussion on Monday 30th April at 11:00 for a 11:30 start. Lunch and coffee will be provided, plus, a free draw with tickets to the Devon County Show as prizes. To help with the catering we need to know who is intending to attend. Please add you name to the list in the club house by 15th April at the latest.

 

Try Bowls

We are having an Open Day on Saturday 12th May from 10 am to 4 pm. It’s free entry and every one is welcome. Please wear flat soled shoes ( no heel ) to go on the green and have a go. We will get you bowling in minutes.

There will be fun bowls challenges, prizes to be won, light refreshments and the bar will be open. All we need is you and preferably the sun.

Until then, click on the photo below to see a clip showing the joy of putting down a good bowl, and to find out more about giving Bowls a try.
