Kent membership grants you and your club a number of great benefits.

Individual Kent membership now costs just £5.50 per player. Roughly 10 pence per week.  It guarantees that you are fully insurance for bowling and travelling to bowls-based activities. If you are a Committee Member, it means that your players are better protected in the unfortunate event of an accident. For the players they can rest assured that if they need treatment or need to take time off work, then there is financial help available.
