Calling all tennis and bowling fans – Ardrishaig is looking for new members.

The Ardrishaig Bowling and Tennis club is issuing an open invitation looking for new people to swing a racket or roll a bowl.

Former club president and current bowling enthusiast, Tommy McCrae said: ‘We have a wee league between Tarbert, Ardrishaig, Lochgilphead and Oban and we’re looking for 12 players to play in the league matches.’

On top of the league, the club also hosts a new competition most weekends. There are currently five different men’s competitions and two for the ladies this season.

‘It’d be a shame to lose it.’ Tommy continued. ‘It depends on membership. If membership keeps going down I don’t know what will happen.’

For the reasonable membership fee of £50, aspiring bowlers can enjoy a sociable sport where it’s easy to meet new people and see more of the country.

Tommy said: ‘We go all over the place. We’ve just been back from Clydebank.’

There are also tennis courts available for those getting Wimbledon fever.

Bowling is Tuesday night at 7pm and Wednesday afternoons at 2.30pm
