What the WI's and clubs are saying

"I'm pleased to say that the three ladies who participated in the scheme really seemed to enjoy themselves with the result that two of them have already joined our Club. Thanks for your help"
Elizabeth Dack, Ladies Hon. Sec. Wivenhoe Bowls Club

"We have been very appreciative of the time and effort that every member of the club (Dean Cross and Oreston Bowls Club), especially the ladies’ team, has given to introduce us to what had previously been a relatively unfamiliar activity.  They were very welcoming and ensured we had a selection of different weight bowls to practice with, guiding us as to which weight to try, ensuring that we were able to play, whilst ensuring we were confident that we would place the bowls on the green in the area they were supposed to be. 

The sessions were so enjoyable that some of our ladies have already expressed an interest in joining the club, which shows that without the implementation of the campaign, they probably would not have even thought of approaching the club let alone the sport itself.

Thank you for introducing Bowls to us."
Pam Bugler, President Elburton WI

"Solihull Municipal Club are looking after us fantastically and we are all having a lot of fun and learning a new skill!"
Louise Thornton, Hockley Heath WI

"They (The Avenue Bowls Club) were super people, very welcoming and friendly and we did enjoy our taster sessions.  I think some ladies, including myself, may continue next year but at a more local club to us.  Overall it was a very enjoyable experience!   Thanks again for all your help!" 
Pat Middleton, Packwood & Bentley Heath WI

"We started our Bowls sessions yesterday, at Steeple Morden Bowls club, and had a wonderful time-everyone so friendly, and two lady coaches really good."
Jean Emes, Royston (PM) WI

"On behalf of Everton & Lymore WI, we would like to say a big thank you for putting us in touch with New Milton Bowls Club, we have had a couple of sessions and we are really enjoying it and everyone at the club has been very friendly and welcoming.  We look forward to many more happy hours bowling."
