Listed Below are Five Reasons One Should Consider Joining a Bowls Club.
1. Lawn Bowls Is Not Just for the Elderly
Years ago there was a stigma attached to lawn bowls. Younger people assumed you only took up the sport when you were too old to play anything else; lawn bowls has always been popular with seniors, but in the modern world, even teenagers are having a go and everyone in between.
Lawn bowls is a relaxed and technical sport that can be enjoyed by people of all ages, so don’t let age stand in your way. Enjoy some lawn bowls today.
2. You Get to Make Loads of New Friends
Bowls clubs are all about getting together with other like-minded people and participating in a fun sport. Because of the very diverse age group that now plays lawn bowls, you’ll make good new friends, both young and old.
Not only will you meet new people while out on the bowling green, but you can socialise with them inside the club as well; where you can have a few beers togrther and join-in at club socal events.
3. Learn New Skills and Have Fun
While lawn bowls isn’t a physically challenging sport by any means, it can be a very skilled and technical one. At a glance, it might look relatively easy, but when you actually play the game, it’s much harder than it appears.
So, if you think you won’t be challenged enough when you take up this sport, think again.
You’ll learn some great new skills when you indulge in a great new past-time and you’ll have a lot of fun in the process. At the end of the day, having a good time is the name of the game.
4. If You’re Competitive You Can Join Tournaments
Not everyone who participates in lawn bowls wants to get competitive and serious about it, but if that’s your mindset, then there are plenty of competitions and tournaments to get involved in to pit your skills against other players.
Naturally, you’ll want to master the game a little before you take that step.
5. There Are Health Benefits
For starters, if you’re playing outdoor bowls, you are getting some fresh air and sunshine. This is always good for your health, so long as you wear some sun protection.
Lawn bowls helps to improve your coordination and self-esteem, as it’s mentally stimulating as much as physically.
Although it’s far from being a high-octane, strenuous sport, it’ll still help improve your fitness levels, joint mobility and flexibility the more you play. This is one reason it’s always been so popular with seniors.
Because it’s a low-impact form of exercise, lawn bowls is kind to the muscles and joints whilst still getting some form of exercise in.
