There is a beautiful enclosed bowling green hidden away in the upper park. The bowling team Eastville and Whitehall, play from the start of April to the end of September. The game is one of skill that takes minutes to learn and a lifetime to master. Each ball has a weighted bias to allow the ball to curve towards the Jack, and the closest balls to the Jack score the most points.
There has been a bowling team at Eastville Park since 1910, originally playing on 2 greens. Only one green is active at the moment next to the historical buildings.
If you would like to try the game of bowls, come and join in on an open day where you can try the game for free and be taught by the current team. Tea, coffee, juice, and cake available to all.
