Our Junior Section

In September 2023, Honiton Bowls Club introduced the sport of lawn bowls to young people in the area. The Junior Section is run by Sue Evans (Level 2 Coach ) and Malcolm Seaborne (Level 1 Coach) with other club members assisting when necessary. We are excited to bring the sport to a new generation of players!

We run weekly coaching sessions  for youngsters aged 8 to 18 years old on Sunday mornings from 8.45am to 9.45am. Term time only.

We charge a nominal fee of £2 per session.

Community Engagement

We have also invited a local school, Littletown Academy, and have run various sessions to give youngsters a taste of bowls.

We have also engaged with the local Brownies and Adventure Scouts and held taster sessions.

Which bowls should I buy?

Your choice of lawn bowls will depend on many factors, and at the end of the day, will boil down to personal preference and the requirements you have for how you play. These will include what position you play, where you play, and how you play.

There are a number of options available to you whether you play indoor or outdoor bowls. Variations in bias and size and weight of the bowl will be the main options you'll need to decide on when choosing your bowl.

Before you choose and buy, it is worth trying different bowls, possibly from the club store or other members, to find which suits you. Also, consider buying second-hand bowls, but above all don’t rush into it!
