Play Bowls is an initiative from the Bowls Development Alliance to help attract new players to the game, local clubs are funded to run beginner sessions and open days and the roadshow visits local towns to help attract people to have a go. Play Bowls Roadshow is a promotional and advertising tool aimed at offering people of all ages the chance to try the sport of bowls whether it be in a shopping mall, local leisure centre, town hall, county show, or even the local supermarket! Those that "have a go" will receive details on their local club and a voucher for a free session at that club
