OPEN DAY

Open Day

The highlight of the week was the Open Day on Saturday when Oakham Bowlers were out in force to welcome visitors to the Vale. From 11.00 am they  were welcomed to the Club before being registered  and then given a short tour of the club house and it’s facilities.

Next they were taken onto the green  where the rinks were set out in a variety of formats. This enabled our visitors, most who were new  to lawn bowls,  an opportunity to  try their hand at an easy, short length  game with lightweight woods before moving on to a full sized rink  using match  woods. Club  members who were guiding and coaching on the rinks were very pleasantly  surprised at the skill levels on display!  Before leaving the Club our Visitors were briefed on membership details, coaching facilities and the easy and friendly way to become involved through the twice weekly chummy games.

It was pleasing to hear the appreciative  comments from our guests  saying how they had enjoyed the experience and the friendly and helpful way  they had been conducted around the club house and on the green. Several visitors were eager to return to the Vale on Sunday morning to join the regular chummy session – a very positive outcome from the day.
