Residents across Sefton are being encouraged to feel the benefits of being more active by trying a free beginners course in bowls.  Taking part can give yourself a boost, feel more refreshed and is a great way to meet new people.

‘Bowl for Health’ is an eight week programme designed for complete newcomers to bowls, providing an overview of the basics and how to play a match.  Run by qualified and welcoming coaches, the programme is available in Waterloo, Formby and Southport.

The programme is being led by MSP and Active Sefton, thanks to funding from the Big Lottery Fund.  The idea was developed and successfully piloted in 2017 by Holy Trinity Bowling Club in Formby, and is now being rolled out by more clubs across the borough.
