How to Join

South Wales Bowls and Recreation Centre is open to members and non-members. A membership form can be obtained by email or just pop into the Centre where someone will be happy to assist you. Open days are held twice each year in September and January and, with the expertise of the coaches, prospective members soon learn the art of their chosen sport. 

Visitors who have not played bowls or petanque before are encouraged to join the four-week coaching course; after this there is another four weeks to become accustomed to playing in league formations and to learn more about the game. The joining fee of £20 is payable at this point together with the appropriate subscription fee. 

After joining, members are encouraged to join a novice league, after which the sky is the limit! Our fees for membership and playing are detailed below; annual membership runs from 1st October to 30th September of the following year.
