Crail Bowling Club is among 70 across Scotland opening its doors to the community this month.

The club is taking part in Bowls Scotland’s £10 Membership initiative, part of the ‘2014 for 2014’ campaign aiming to introduce 2014 new players to bowls before the Glasgow Commonwealth Games.

Bowls Scotland is leading the £10 Membership initiative by helping clubs spread the word in their communities, providing posters for clubs to advertise locally, training manuals, template coaching plans and teaching cards.

It is recommending clubs run their membership campaigns at a cost of £10 per newcomer.

Crail Bowling Club President David Myles told the Mail: “We were attracted to join the membership campaign in order to access as much support as possible to increase the membership of the club.

“We are committed to welcoming new people of all ages to the club with a view to encouraging them to take up bowls.

“Crail is an active participant in District 7s Development Forum and part of its objective is to attract new players of both genders between the ages of 25 - 55 years of age and in addition to encourage children of school age to take a keen interest in bowling.”
