Formal coaching is currently unavailable but free taster sessions are available from experienced club members for non-members who will pay no rink fee for the first two sessions.

Free guidance is also available for beginners who have become members from experienced club members. Normal rink fee payable.

Bowls of all sizes are available to borrow.

Beginners without bowls shoes, please wear flat-soled shoes with no heavy tread pattern to protect the grass from wear. We do however have a limited supply of bowling shoes available to use.

These short videos published by Auckland Bowls are excellent for learning the basics of how to play lawn bowls. Each video focuses on a key element of playing lawn bowls.

(We play on grass instead of a carpet but the basics are very similar)
