The Para Hills Bowling Club was delighted this year to gain a number of new bowlers. For some who have joined our ranks, this will be the first time they have participated in competition bowls. Of course we wish them every success. As an aid to our new bowlers, and others who may be interested, the Para Hills Bowling Club has added to its website a page titled “New Bowlers Guide”. This page is intended to provide some basic lawn bowls information and assist new bowlers to appreciate and develop their game. The Para Hills Bowling Club trusts you find the New Bowlers Guide of some assistance.
