KNUTSFORD Guardian readers can take advantage of a club's special offer.

The committee and members feel that their sports haven is so wonderful they want others to be able to enjoy it too.

They ask this question: "Where can you keep fit, meet new friends, and play one of the most enjoyable sports in beautiful surroundings?"

And they are proud to answer: "Knutsford Bowling Club."

Knutsford Guardian:

Readers are being offered free membership for the remainder of the year and use of a set of bowls.

And a number of open days have been set up so that potential new members can give crown green bowls and the Mereheath Lane facility a try before joining in officially.

Dave Mee, bowls secretary, said: "There's never been a better time to start.

"You can play socially or join one of our many teams that play in the various leagues."

Knutsford Bowling Club has been a part of the town's heritage since 1882 and many generations have enjoyed the friendship and team spirit that goes with playing a game of bowls.

The club was originally sited in the town centre until it moved to its current location in 1975.

Knutsford Guardian:

"Membership is open to men, women and young persons of all ages," added Mee.

"For new bowlers we are able to offer free tuition and the loan of a set of bowls to get you started.

"Whether you just want to bowl for fun or play on a team you can be sure of a warm welcome and a great time."

Throughout the season a number of friendly competitions (mainly on a Sunday) are held for people of different skills.

"You can enjoy meeting other members and sample our delicious barbecue food and other tasty delights," added Mee.

All year round members enjoy events such as quiz nights, bingo and hot pot suppers, which prove very popular.

Knutsford Guardian:

"There is nothing nicer than being out on a summer's evening playing bowls, and then relaxing with a drink in the comfort of our beautiful licensed clubhouse which overlooks the green," said Mee.

So to celebrate the return back to bowls after lockdown restrictions, the club is holding a series of open days spread over three months.

They will take place on Saturdays May 29, June 26 and July 3, as well as Sunday, May 30.
