Free sessions at bowls club

WHITLEY Bay & Monkseaton Bowling Club are offering free taster sessions throughout May for people to try the sport.

Every Saturday in May people can attend to see if it is something they would like to take up.

Bowls is a good way to keep fit and during a game a participant will bend 42 times, walk approximately 1,260 metres and swing their arm more than 40 times to deliver a bowl weighing three pounds.

Those who attend are asked to take flat soled shoes (no heels) such as trainers or plimsoles.
