Response to the North Region Taster/Training Day at York IBC on 1st October 2016 was a very positive one with 15 people coming to bowl along with 8 volunteer coaches and helpers.
The group consisted of some experienced and novice bowlers along with 3 people who had never bowled before.
During the morning session the bowlers were split into small groups and were coached according to their experience. After lunch everyone, including helpers and coaches, took part in a match to finish off the day.
The club facilities and restaurant were excellent and suitably accessible. Manager Ian Clough was very helpful and the catering was excellent.
Feedback from the group at the end of the day was very good. Everyone saying that they enjoyed the day and had found the coaching to be, well run, very informative and helpful.
All of the new bowlers joined DBE.
