RSL bowling club offering new players free bowls, coaching

BALLINA RSL has come up with an inducement for new bowlers that shows it is one club not prepared to sit on its hands when it comes to player recruitment.

The club is offering the first 20 to join it a free set of bowls. Added to this is free coaching.

It is a move by the club to provide for those who might be concerned about the cost of bowls, which can be $500 or more.

Those who'd like to take advan-tage of the offer should call club president Brian Lewis on 6686 7180.

In announcing the recruitment drive, the president said the many men, women and children who played bowls did so because it did not require any special strength, agility or endurance.
