Go skittling

In rural Gloucestershire, where your author grew up, there are still a number of places where you can play a nice game of skittles - there are even a number of leagues in which teams play. In London, however, skittle alleys are much fewer and further between.

There is, however, a skittle alley in the cellar of The Freemasons Arms in Hampstead, and the Hampstead Lawn Billiard and Skittle club meets there regularly to play a good few games.

Club nights are Tuesdays from 8pm (and occasionally on Saturdays 6pm-9pm), and new players are welcome. The club also allows group bookings for a fee, if you fancy a skittles party. If you want more information on this, email the club via the website at http://www.londonskittles.co.uk.
