We had a reasonable turn out of about 10 people, who have never played bowls before. They all enjoyed themselves and committed to coming again next week. Spread the word! We have already had one person, who has signed up to join one of our teams in our leagues. A very good start.

2 October 2022Taff Ely Indoor Bowling Centre are working in a partnership with Rhondda Cynon Taff, to promote the game of bowls in and around our area. See the poster below, that the RCT have done, for more details.

Instruction will be given before you play, to show you how to play. If you could bring, and wear flat soled shoes, as we only have a limited number of shoes. Bowls will be provided.

Bowls is a sport of gentle exercise, walking and bending. It is also a great way to meet and socialise with other people. We look forward to meeting you.

30 July 2022: It's been quite a while since I updated this page, mainly due to it being the summer season. I do have a couple of updates for you, one is our postcode and one about our Thursday social bowling.                                               We have a change to our postcode, which was found when we renewed our Premise Licence. We were looking for our rateable value and could not find the old address. Apparently, we were using the wrong postcode! The correct postcode is now CF37 2BW.                                                                                                              Our Centre Manager Lorraine Bailyes, has decided to stop our Thursday social bowling for this season after a discussion with our Treasurer Judith Wason. We were only getting a few people to come in and play, which did not cover our overheads. So we will only be opening on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday for social bowling for the rest of this season. A decision will be made of what we do next season, at our Committee meetings and put to the AGM.
