Lawn bowling may be the only outdoor sport that you can play without putting your refreshment down - so folks are allowed to enjoy their beverages as they play. There is, however, No Smoking on the greens.

The evening's agenda is always: a BBQ, socializing, and practicing starting at 6:00 pm; 1st game at 7:00 pm; and 2nd game at 8:00 pm - finishing at 9:00 pm.

Teams will be formed on a drop-in basis each week. If there are 4 people who want to play together consistently, that's fine. For everyone else, they can simply play with whoever else shows up.

Each week (4 people per week) will be chosen to act as the next week's "evening facilitators". The "evening facilitators" would be responsible for barbequing, putting the beverages on ice, setting-up the equipment, collecting drop-in fees, running a 50/50 draw, and cleaning up. Since it would be a different group of people each week, everyone should only have to do it once (providing we have enough players in the league). If someone can't work their shift, they must arrange to switch with someone else.

The Inglewood Lawn Bowling Club will provide all of the lawn bowling equipment. There isn't a strict dress code, however flat-soled shoes are a must. Sneakers are perfectly acceptable, so are sandals, flip-flops or any other footwear without a heel - so basically, no dress shoes, heeled sandals, boots, pumps, stilettos... In short, whatever you find to be comfortable and doesn't have a heel. Bare feet, however, are not allowed.

Schedule

Tuesday evenings all summer long, between 6:00 pm and 9:00 pm.
