Former world champion Greg Harlow will be giving a presentation at an upcoming open night at Boston Indoor Bowling Club.

The event will see the former world number one joined by representatives from the English Indoor Bowling Association and organisers Potters Resort.

Following approximately an hour of presentations about the sport, those present will be invited to take to the rinks and enjoy some fun competitions.

“The idea is that the evening will be open to members of the club as well as people who have never played bowls before,” said Nathan Moore, group and commercial team manager at Potters Resort.

“We are very keen to promote the sport and are trying to encourage people who have wanted to take part but are yet to do it to come and have a go.”

Potters Resort hosts the World Indoor Bowls Championships, as well as offering a wide range of sporting and health activities.

And the evening will also see a free prize draw take place, with one entrant winning a four night break for two at the Great Yarmouth resort.

There will also be an entertainer from the resort on hand to provide some musical entertainment.

The event will be held on Thursday, February 12 (doors 6.30pm).

The Rosebery Avenue club will also host an open day on Saturday, running from 10am-2pm.
