The outdoor bowling season is normally from start April to end September. The precise date is determined by the individual Bowling Club – see above – and usually depends upon the grounds man’s opinion as to fitness. For information, contact the Leader for your chosen green.
The 2021 season is obviously impacted by the lock down and then the tier system that defines the constraints upon activity. Local bowling leagues are thinking in terms of a 1st June start.
Even if you have never played crown green bowls, feel free to come along for a taster session at the Cockbeck green. Provided you contact me (Derrick) in advance, I can make sure bowls are available for you.
It is possible that the bowling green at the Ormskirk Cricket Club will be added as a u3a venue. When available, details will follow.
If you wish to bowl indoors during the winter, why not check out  the Short Mat Bowling or the  Tenpin Bowling Group Pages for opportunities.
