Welcome to the Bearsted and Thurnham Bowls Club Junior Section

JUNIOR COACHING
Newcomers are most welcome in the age band 8 to 18. We require newcomers to be accompanied by an adult so that we can explain membership of the junior coaching scheme more fully.

Coaching will be provided by qualified - CRB checked - Coaches.

Junior Section coaching takes place each Saturday morning 10am until 12 noon.
Starting in May and continuing throughout most of the season.
Dress is Greys, including shorts and white tops.
We would appreciate if you could arrive by 9.45 each week to register,
so that we can then maximise the time we spend on the green together
