Bowling in Tenerife
Bowls is a game associated with the more mature person as it appears quite gentle and not too physically demanding. It does, however, require a lot of skill and has become more popular in recent years with younger people.
It also provides an excellent opportunity for a convivial social gathering.
There are three venues for the genteel sport of bowling in Tenerife.
Winter Gardens is described as a Luxury International Bowling Complex. With its own hotel providing bowling holidays, it is found on the Golf del Sur urbanization.
From the main TF-1 motorway, leave at the Las Chafiras exit (junction 24) and follow the Los Abrigos signs. You negotioate a roundabout, then straight after, there is a right turn. Take this and you'll see the sign for Golf del Sur.
This urbanization eventually becomes one-way and, if you take this, you'll arrive at Winter Gardens on your right, just after Parque Albatros.
This venue has excellent bowling facilities, with eight rinks for flat-green bowling. There is a reception where you can hire all the necessary bowling equipment.
Winter Gardens is fully wheelchair-friendly, with ramp access to all areas.
An on-site bowling co-ordinator can organise competitive matches, tournaments, lessons, a fun morning with barbecue, plus evening leagues.
There is the Last End bar, found next to the greens, offering drinks and snacks to be enjoyed while you play.
