Riverain Bowls Club Youth Section

Riverain Indoor Bowls Club runs bowling sessions for young players under the age of 18 in Hertfordshire.

Each session costs £2 per child and all you need to get started is a clean pair of flat soled trainers or shoes, although there are some bowling shoes available to borrow.

2018-2019 Young Players

The juniors meet from 9.00am to 11.30am most Saturday mornings at Riverain from October to March and is led by a team of highly qualified coaching staff headed up by Sandra Smale.
The coaches are dedicated to working with the young players to help them reach their potential and are all trained in safeguarding.

The sessions aim to develop the skill of bowling in our youngsters in a fun and friendly environment, giving a thorough grounding in technique, etiquette, communication and tactics.
No experience is necessary – just enthusiasm and a willingness to learn.

There are opportunities throughout the year to take part in in-house and national competitions, as well as to participate in county and national level award schemes.

For more information, please email juniors@riverain.co.uk or phone our Head Coach Sandra on 07783 303268 or Youth Secretary Julie on 07954 722667.

2018-2019 young players

The annual Riverain Juniors Generation Game took place on the 12th January 2019 with twelve of our juniors pairing up with a parent to play in a round robin against each other.

After some very good play from all, the last four included our youngest player LillieMay and three of our more experienced ones - Rhianna, Adam and Jamie H.
The eventual winner, with the best shot difference after a brilliant run in all of his games was Jamie who skipped for his Dad.

Well done Jamie – 2019 Generation Game Champion!
