The Jubilee Park Lawn Bowling Club kicked off its summer season on April 30, and welcomes players of all ages to join in the fun.

The lawn bowling club has been in operation for 79 years, since 1935.

Jubilee Park is located near the area of McCallum Road and South Fraser Way in Abbotsford.

The fee to play is $40 a year and entitles a person to bowl four days a week – Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday, if weather permits.

The bowling times are at 1:15 p.m. in May, 6:45 p.m. from June to August, and 5:45 p.m. in September.

Bowlers should arrive 15 minutes before the start time so they can be placed on a team. Teams are made from the members who show up, and there is no need to cancel if you cannot arrive.

Free lessons can be arranged by calling 604-556-0106 or 604-859-9972.
