Moray bowling club plays host to school pupils with hopes they pick the sport up

The opening day of the 2019 Tomintoul and Glenlivet bowling season.

A Moray outdoor bowling club hosted 24 school children to inspire them to pick the sport up.

Tomintoul and Glenlivet were visited by children from Rothes Primary School as part of an overnight stay and trip to the scenic area.

They were taught how to throw their ball towards a jack, something that many of them had never done before.

Bad weather did not deter them from enjoying themselves as they were helped by club members Caroline McIntosh, Charlie Stewart and Mike Budd.

Mr Budd, the secretary, hoped that they could be persuaded to start a career playing outdoor bowls.

He said: “None of the children had played bowls before, but they all picked up the game very quickly. Hailstones during the game added a touch of character building to events, but these are a hardy bunch.

“The club members received handwritten letters of thanks from children, so they must have enjoyed themselves.

“It was a great privilege to teach such well behaved and attentive children in this day and age. The event may also have helped some of them wish to take up a sport instead of just taking to the keyboard. We hope so.”
