The Gordon Head Lawn Bowling Club is looking for teens between the ages of 12 and 18 for its new Junior Lawn Bowling Program.

“Lawn bowls is a very social game with the emphasis on having fun and showing respect for other players in a friendly and supportive environment,” said organizer Ann Bodley-Scott. “It is a game that is suited to young people who have difficulty managing school sports and also to students with certain kinds of special needs as well.”

Participants can use club bowls and should wear shoes with flat soles, no tread. Clothing should be comfortable and casual. Training sessions are Wednesdays at 4 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays at 9:30 a.m. Participants may stay longer if a coach is present. Call 250-721-1331 for information or to register.
