The club has a variety of bowls to loan and visitors are not required to follow a dress code other than wearing flat-soled shoes. It is a universal rule in lawn bowling that shoes with heels are not allowed because they may damage the playing surface. Members and visiting bowlers are requested to arrive at the green 10 minutes earlier than playing times so that they can be acquainted and be there when teams are made up.
