Welcome to Indoor Bowls at Risbygate Sports Club. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, at Risbygate you can play this social and friendly sport to whatever level you choose.
- Four rinks, ensuring all-year-round play
- In-house leagues (ladies’, men’s and mixed) as well as external competitions.
- Regular ’friendship’ and other play available
- Group bookings welcome for social and competitive play.
- Nationally qualified coaches.
As an example, Saturday afternoon friendly matches enable new players to familiarise themselves with the rigours and mysteries of playing matches against unfamiliar opposition. Internal club competitions encourage players of all abilities to interact with each other in well contested and sociable matches. If, and when, you progress further there are also opportunities to enter County and National competitions.
We have a dedicated band of enthusiastic coaches under the wing of Head Coach Bernie Millard to encourage and inspire you to greater proficiency. If you wish to simply finish our introductory course and enjoy the physical and social benefits of the sport that is fine, but as a full member you are also encouraged to join the Friendship League. This provides a path, for those who prefer a more keenly contested sport, through to the internal leagues of which there are several varieties.
The Club also takes part in Suffolk County Leagues. We put out a team in the Men’s Suffolk West League and two teams in the Mixed Suffolk West League. This enables the better players to test their skills against opposition who they may not meet very often.
