Every alternate Saturday morning, Durbanville Bowls Club provides the opportunity for anyone who would like to try their hand at lawn bowls just to get the ‘feel” for the game and to have some fun at the same time.



Called Action Bowls, this is Durbanville Bowls Club’s way of introducing the game to those who have absolutely no previous experience whatsoever, or for previous bowlers to get a refresher, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

All that is required to participate is to check the date when the next session is scheduled, either from our Facebook pages or Email address or by taking a drive past the bowls clubhouse where a banner is permanently displayed with the time and date of the next event, and then just arriving!

Usually starting at 9.30 am, a session lasts about 3 hours, including a tea break, and basic coaching will be provided for first timers prior to playing a proper game. The club has a large selection of bowls from which a size most suitable for a particular individual can be provided.


The only condition for the participants is that they wear shoes with flat soles, i.e. no deep treads or instep, or alternatively bare foot is quite acceptable.

Action Bowls is the ideal opportunity for those who have been thinking about playing lawn bowls but either haven’t quite known how to get started, or have just felt nervous or intimidated by the concept of the game.
