Buying or Selling Bowls

IMG_4260What Bowls Suit You?

Experiment with bowls of different sizes and weights to see which are the more comfortable for you. You should borrow them from the club’s stock or club members who will be happy to offer advice.

New bowls can be expensive and newcomers are usually advised to get a second-hand set first until they understand the game better. Above all ensure the bowls you go for feel right and are comfortable to play with. More detailed descriptions of selecting bowls can be found on ebay.com.
