(Based locally at the Bournemouth Bowling Centre Kings Park, Bournemouth. This shop has an extensive range of all types of clothing and equipment reasonably priced. Of course you can visit, see and inspect, try on or try before you buy? Some bowlers prefer this rather than online)
Road Shows: Bowling Sales
From time to time there are companies with all their equipment for sale that tour clubs including some locally. Look out for these advertised or by word of mouth from other members?
These normally take place usually at The Atherley Bowling Club, Southampton, Totton Bowling Centre, Totton and also Brockenhurst Bowling Club.
Lyndhurst Bowling Club
has also an arrangement with a company called Rainbow Imaging based in Lymington. There they can do embroidery putting your name and our Club Logo onto personal clothing for you, payable directly to them.
Remember: Information for new bowlers there is no need to rush to buy especially your choice of woods? Talk to experienced Club members/bowlers to get advice especially around woods and correct size., as these can be expensive? Also speak to others to see what appropriate clothing you may/will need before buying.
Try out woods are available in our Club Equipment Store to use on a temporary basis so you can vary the sizes to see what works for you.
