Facilities Update

We took advantage of the latest lockdown to renew the bowls carpet in the bowls hall. We also installed LED lighting which has improved visibility and the playing environment. Risbygate is committed to maintaining its position as one of the best Indoor Bowls facilities in the region. Come along to our Open Day on Sunday June 6th and give Indoor Bowls a try.
