Here’s how many of us retired persons spend our days here in the Algarve. A couple of sample pictures from yesterday’s Algarve Bowls League summer final day.

I managed to be bitten by some nameless bug and have a rather itchy and swollen leg!

There is an active lawn bowls scene across the Algarve all year around. Clubs are based near Praia da Luz (the venue above), Alvor, Balaia (near Albufeira), Albufeira itself at Clube Praia da Oura (winter only there), Almancil, Cabanas and near Tavira.

There are winter and summer leagues plus a host of individual inter club competitions for men and women. Clubs also have their own ‘in house’ competitions. New members are always welcome.

Clubs also welcome individual visitors and touring teams. Why not drop by if you are on holiday? Shoes and bowls are available for rental if needed. Some websites (not all clubs have one) :
