Get Active 50 logoGet active 50+ offers opportunities for adults aged 50 and over to become more active.

Leading a healthier, more active lifestyle doesn't necessarily mean going to the gym, it could be brisk walking, ballroom dancing or bowls.

Bowls

Bowls is an exciting and competitive sport where you can have fun, relax and meet new friends. There are 11 bowls clubs throughout Waverley who are always welcoming new members to join up. Get involved in "roll-up" evenings, friendlies and even league games. Don't forget about the socials too! For more information on your local bowls club, please email Leisure@Waverley.gov.uk.
