Youth

Come along and have some fun!

Gateshead Indoor Bowling Club are very keen to support young people interested in learning more about the sport and developing their skills.

Our team of coaches are fully qualified and have DBS status.

Our Youth section runs on Saturday mornings 9:00-10:00am.  The first session is free, then 70p thereafter. All you need is a clean pair of flat soled trainers or shoes, although we do have some available to borrow,  your enthusiasm and a responsible adult if you’re under 18 years and we’ll supply the rest – coaching, equipment and support.  Contact Keith Atkinson on 0191 478  1721  for further information.
