YOUNG people are being offered the chance to enjoy some free bowling sessions in Rubery.

Hollywood Bowl, at Birmingham Great Park in Rubery, has teamed up with Bromsgrove District Council to offer residents six free sessions of bowling.

The free sessions are part of a wider national Sportivate programme, funded by Sport England, aimed at increasing the number of young people taking part in physical activity.

Youngsters who take part are also being given the chance to enter a prize draw to win further free sessions.

The sessions are being held from January 28 until March 24, excluding half term week February 18-22.

There are limited spaces so anyone interested in advised to book early, to avoid disappointment.

To gain a six session pass, residents are asked to call Hollywood Bowl on 0121 453 7301, and complete a registration form prior to their first session.

Anyone interested needs to be between 14 and 25-years-old to qualify for the free sessions.
