President’s Message

Eastbourne and District Indoor Bowls Club has undergone several improvements over the past couple of years that has seen the club membership grow significantly.

During the summer, the club website has been fully redesigned and modernised to better reflect our club status as one of the leading indoor bowls clubs in the South East of England. Our new web pages will allow everyone to see inside our wonderful bowls club.

May I take this opportunity to welcome each and every member in to the club and wish you all a pleasurable and successful year.
