Saturday 30 June 2012 – Roundwood Bowls Club, Gordon Road, Ipswich
I had my first (poor) attempt at Lawn Bowls on Saturday, a great afternoon of fun, but a far more difficult game than it looks - but that is not the point of this post, it is just how many Bowls Greens we have in this country, often hidden away in some urban street behind a long brick wall.
Ipswich and Suffolk has always been a bowls hot bed, and we have some famous greens, the one behind the Margaret Catchpole pub in the town is a national treasure. we also have a number of dis-used greens - Westagte Club, Ransomes and I am sure we will lose more over the next few years, The council still has its own greens, with greens at Chantry and Christchurch Park to name just two.
So have a look over that wall, pop in, have a cuppa and try your hand at a game that deserves to thrive.
