Frequently Asked Questions
Ten Pin Bowling
We are presently a small group of 15 enthusiastic bowlers of mixed ability, who play regularly for enjoyment and exercise.
We meet at the AMF Wigan Bowl at 12:45pm for a 1:00pm start.
We bowl on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Thursday of each month during the school terms when there are fewer lanes occupied by the public, which is the reason why we get a significantly reduced cost of £5 for 3 games bowled. We do not bowl during the local school holidays.
We have the use of up to 14 lanes which could easily hold 56 bowlers at any one time, but we use fewer lanes depending on how many members turn up to bowl. We have found that 4 bowlers per lane is a good number to encourage conversation and competition.
At present our group is open to ALL U3A members and there is no waiting list. You can just turn up and bowl.
Members of other U3As are also welcome to participate provided they can show a current U3A membership card from their own U3A.
All bowlers pay the same “reduced” game fee.
