Coaching and Newcomers

Burghfield Bowls Club Coaching Course

Thank you for visiting our website and showing an interest in our Club.

We  begin the season with our first Open Day for new bowlers, on Sunday 24th April 2022, after which we will start a 4 session introductory ‘Play Bowls 4 Fun‘ coaching course for those who registered details. With the Big Bowls Weekend running from 27th – 29th May 2022 we will offer a second Open Day on Saturday 28th and be running another 4 week course. It doesn’t mean you have to attend every single week, but we will go through a four week programme with each individual. We require details of who is attending to book enough space and helpers. Session 1 – Delivering the Jack. Session 2 – Releasing the bowl. Session 3 – Adaptations in shots. Session 4 – Tactics and Individual progression. The first part of each session is taken up with tuition and then you can practise, play a short match or try out our target mats afterwards. Groups normally start between 6.15pm and 6:45pm.

Regular coaching is available on most Monday evenings, some Friday evenings or by appointment with Kevin Belcher. County Competitions may interrupt a few weeks when we will be organising either a Saturday or Sunday morning session as well.

For anyone else interested we can offer a follow-up course. Please drop an email to stating contact details – names/numbers and ages (for those under 18), then which session of the week you prefer and whether you have played before or not. We will then try sort out a schedule.

The cost of this course is £5 per person, per four sessions attending, redeemable against any application for membership afterwards.

So, all you need to bring is a pair of flat soled shoes and some enthusiasm.

New ‘Try for Free’ sessions

Further details will be published here as soon as possible. For any enquiries about coaching or trial bowling, please phone Kevin Belcher on 0118 9332581.
