New Members

Ryde Marina Bowls Club is normally available for both Members and Non Members to play bowls. A membership form can be copied from this website, or obtained from the club. Open Days to the public are held each year in May; these are responsible for keeping the Membership to a high level and, with the expertise of the Coaches and Senior Members, prospective Members soon understand the art of bowling.

Prospective Members, who have not played bowls before, are encouraged to join a Coaching Course before paying the appropriate Annual Subscription.

After joining, Members are encouraged to further participate by taking part in “Spoon Drives” which are held througout the summer.
