Swindon Town Gardens Bowling Club is participating in a national weekend promotion of the sport.

Bowls' Big Weekend (BBW) runs on Saturday and Sunday, 29 and 30 May from 11am to 4pm.

The club has been based at the Town Gardens since 1912.

A spokesperson said: "The BBW is intended to encourage people to have some fun while experiencing how bowls is such an accessible sport to one and all, including those with disability.  

"We have specially-adapted wheelchairs for those with mobility problems as well as aids to assist people with flexibility and back problems. 

"Everybody is welcome to come along and have a go, and all that is needed are flat shoes - trainers are usually OK - to walk on the bowling green. Experienced bowlers and coaches will be available to assist and advise you if you want it."

People are more than welcome to simply turn up, but to minimise any waiting it would be best to book a time slot by contacting the club secretary at or calling 07768 985925.
