Welcome to the Junior Section!

The club has, on several occasions, hosted Brunstane Primary 7 pupils at the club and awarded a number of Basic Skills certificates. And some have continued to attend as members of the Junior Section (and moved into the Senior section in time...)

The Junior section participate in a joint Portobello / Brunstane team in the Edinburgh Junior Bowling League. Individual teams have represented the club in a number of Junior competitions and performed very well.

Each year, the club's Junior Champion goes forward to the Junior Champion of Champions competition.
