LEARNING TO LAWN BOWL
A concern for some new members is that they won't be good enough at the game to be able to play with the rest of the club.
Don't worry. The atmosphere we try to create at DLBC revolves very much around sociability and low-pressure, friendly play. We don't have set teams with league standings and win/loss records. We encourage a "drop-in" culture with a focus on mutually supportive game play and on general social enjoyment.
For new members, we provide a free, 3-lesson introductory bowls course before the season starts. This is designed to provide novices with the skills and knowledge they need to begin club play right away. We supplement this with a quick-reference Handbook and additional coaching sessions throughout the season.
New bowlers will find they fit in quickly with experienced players, but we also create playing opportunities and competitions reserved for bowlers with 3 or less years of experience. This way, new bowlers can play and learn together with members of a similar experience level.
