Our indoor bowling group at Turpin’s Indoor Bowling Club is going from strength to strength. We have 30 plus U3A members playing here. We have a team playing in the Monday Triples  and  also the Thursday Hong Kong Pairs Leagues. Both are giving very creditable performances. We also have 2 rinks for our sole use on Tuesday at 11.30 am (note the new time). We would like to increase the number of teams playing under the U3A banner for the next season starting in September/October 2018.
