Today, as part of our BDA (Bowls Development Alliance) programme, eight club members attended a Club Helpers workshop, hosted by Conor Grogan.
The purpose of the workshop was to provide guidance in welcoming and introducing potential members at Open Days and club nights.
Split into two groups of four, we went through some examples of how we could introduce new bowlers to our sport, using games equipment provided by Conor. This proved to be very useful, and highlighted points that we had missed, or could improve.
Although we are unlikely to hold an Open Day this season, the lessons learnt should stand us in good stead next year, and whenever potential members come to the club.
