Taster sessions

Most activity groups are happy to let you attend a session to give you a “taster” of what to expect if you choose to join. Just contact the group’s secretary.

Some groups however offer more formal taster or introductory sessions which you can attend:

Petanque / Boules

Possible rerun of taster sessions in 2019.

Introduction to Bowls

Taster sessions will be offered again during Spring 2019. If being active is more your ‘thing’, you’ll want to know that the 2019 Wetherby Bowls Club season will be underway in Spring at Grange Park; New members – free coaching 2.00pm on the following days; Monday=Crown Green; Tuesday=Flat Green; Thursday & Sunday=Crown and Flat. Interested? You’ll be warmly welcomed. For more information please visit the website;

Have you ever wanted to try bowls but lacked the courage to go alone to the bowling club?Would you like to try in the company of other beginners?We can offer u3a members the chance to give it a go, free of charge with the loan of all equipment!., as a taster. Wetherby Bowling Club hopes you will become ‘hooked’ but there will be no pressure to join.

For beginners too!Racketball is played on a regular squash court with a larger ball, which does not need warming up (like in squash) and a shorter racket. The fact that the ball moves slower gives the opponent more time to react and get to the ball. The shorter racket also helps with hand eye coordination making the ball easier to strike. If you are interested in finding out more, or having a free taster session at Collingham and Linton Squash and Racketball Club, then please contact Stephen Widdison 07802 370995 swiddison892@btinternet.com
