ActivLives bowls sessions are about to go back outdoors for the summer season. We start back at the Kesgrave Community Centre, IP5 1JF, on Tuesday 10 May, 10.30-12.30. It’s a lovely green to play on with plenty of space. The session fee is £4.50. We have spare bowls/woods, so don’t worry about bringing any equipment. ‘First timers’ are especially welcome! Please wear a pair of flat-soled shoes (no sandals).
We are not a ‘bowls club’ as such – just a group of friendly souls who enjoy a bit of sport (and a cuppa!).
All of the details are on the ActivLives Calendar. Thank you to the Kesgrave Community Centre and the Kesgrave Bowls Club for supporting us in getting these sessions back up and running.
So, in this Commonwealth Games year, why not give lawn bowls a try?
It would be great to see you there!
The latest ActivLives Inclusive Badminton Tournament was held recently at Whitton Sports Centre in Ipswich, with 23 athletes competing in both singles and doubles events. The standard of play was excellent throughout the day with some extremely close matches deciding the final medal placings, across the various divisions.
This was the second ActivLives tournament since the pandemic and the first to include competitors from another Inclusive/Special Olympics club. Four players joined us from the Anders Disability Badminton Charity, based in Wimbledon. The event concluded with a very exciting Team Relay match, involving all 23 of the competitors.
“We have had such positive feedback from the players and families, as a result of this event. Everyone has commented upon the great team of volunteers who made this event happen. Huge thanks must go to them as events like this simply wouldn’t take place if it wasn’t for the volunteers who organise and deliver them”, said Mike McCarthy from ActivLives.
ActivLives are very grateful to everyone who continues to support these events including Special Olympics Suffolk, Suffolk Community Foundation, Active Suffolk, Suffolk County Council and Ipswich Borough Council.

With regret we have had to cancel the inclusive badminton sessions for the 16th March.
We would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused. Currently we are planning on having a session next week but please keep an eye on the calendar and our website for the most up to date info.
