As a complete novice, I was surprised just how easy it is to get the hang of the game. It took a couple of sessions to become confident but since joining, I haven't looked back.
My one regret is that I didn't start playing bowls until my seventies. Forget the hype: this is far from being just an old person's game. My advice would be, start as young as possible and enjoy the game, the camaraderie and the social spin-off that a club like OPBC provides.
I enjoy being outside and playing in a tactical game with friends. Bowls is competitive (and winning is nice!) but the competition not all consuming. With Bowls, the enjoyment always comes first.
