Bowling House in Norwich has teamed up with Age UK to launch a new group for the elderly to help reduce isolation.
The new 'Come Bowling' group will meet once at month at the Dereham Road venue and has been set up in partnership with charity Age UK.
The event will give older people the opportunity to have a go at ten-pin bowling whilst socialising in a relaxed atmosphere.
Cathy Eden, Age UK Norwich's Community Outreach Officer, said: 'We're delighted to be working together with The Bowling House to offer this activity for older people and we'd love to welcome some new members to join the fun.
'You don't have to be a bowling expert.
