Indoor Bowling

Face-to-face events are currently suspended due to the Covid-19 measures.

Under Normal Circumstances with this activity the constant movement helps burn excess fat, the legs are exercised walking back and forth between ends; as you roll the ball the repeated flexing, bending, twisting and stretching tones the shoulders, arms, chest and leg muscles; and gripping the ball strengthens the hands. Your sense of balance and your hand-eye co-ordination are also given a workout. Then there’s the pleasure achieved through a little competition. All this is done in a very gentle fashion in a sociable environment at Meadowmill Indoor Bowls, Tranent, EH33 1L, Mondays, 12 noon to 2 pm, ALL YEAR round.

Adapted wheelchairs are available.

Every year there is a Fife Bowls Challenge where a match takes place with the Parkinson’s UK Fife Branch, the two Branches taking turns to host the event. Some years we win, some we lose but a very enjoyable time is always had by all as shown on the faces of this typical challenge teams photograph.
