Who said bowls was only for the old? Students from Epping St John’s School teamed up with near neighbours Epping Bowls Club for a ‘Come & Try’ The opportunity to try something new fitted neatly into the school’s plans to offer alternative sports to students at the end of the school year. Tom McGarr, Head of Sport, said: “We were delighted to be invited by Epping Bowls Club earlier this year and this was a ‘first’ for us both. The staff could see how much the students enjoyed themselves and we are keen to plan regular sessions in the future.” Men’s Captain Ron Perryman said: “It was a pleasure to entertain Epping St John’s pupils to play bowls. They were enthusiastic and several showed lots of promise in a short space of time. We would like to do it again and hope we can establish something during our season April to September."
