P7 Road Bowlers

30th Sep 2019

Mr O Hare’s P7 Class recently attended a Road Bowls Taster Day held on the 3G surface down at Sherry’s Field. Three other schools from outside of the town also attended this event organised by members of the local road bowling clubs. The pupils were each shown how to hold the 24 ounce steel “bullet” and then how to throw the bullet in a straight line. It was harder than they thought but by the end of the coaching session almost every pupil was able to throw the road bowl in a straight line with power, reaching a certain distance before it stopped rolling. Following this taster day the road bowl clubs are to send flyers into schools informing pupils and parents when and where they can join their local clubs and hopefully grow to enjoy the sport. Thanks to all who organised this super event.
