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 Cockbeck will allow bowlers to pay per session. However, the norm is to join the Cockbeck Bowling Club. Once you are a member, you are not constrained to the U3A scheduled sessions. You can bowl any time that the green is not booked for another purpose (e.g. a league match). The green is invariably available in the morning and at weekends.
“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.”

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.
