New Bowlers

Yowani actively encourages new bowlers, and free introductory coaching with one of our qualified coaches can be arranged at a mutually convenient time.

On Thursday mornings Yowani operates an introduction to bowls and social games for those wanting more experience in a supportive atmosphere.  These mornings are run in conjunction with U3A. Both new and experienced bowlers attend these events and it is a great way for aspiring bowlers to get started.

Coaching is available prior to the start of play on Thursdays with notification beforehand.

If you are interested in learning to bowl or coaching, contact the Bowls Office on 6228 9733.
