Spalding District Bowls Club is some 50+ years old and has an active membership across all ages. The clubs facilities include the large international specification bowling carpet area, surrounding viewing areas, a bar and small cafe / restaurant. The Club has also enjoyed numerous of National & International honours.
Our client required an audio system installation to provide zone based coverage to the main bowling areas, the bar and cafe/restaurant. Background music (BGM) and wireless radio microphone system was required for events and competitions for competitor and team ‘walk-on’ / interviews.

Audio Specification & Technologies
- 100v line, high impedance
- True Diversity wireless microphone system
The large open expanse of the main bowling hall / area was a particular challenge. We investigated and discussed the possibility of speaker installation to the suspended ceiling, but there was concern for any possible disruption or damage to the hallowed bowling carpet. It was decided to run cables and install speakers to the perimeter of this area – installing colour coded cable containment to help disguise against the brown brick walls.
Traditional 100v line audio was specified and installed. 2-way loud speakers were installed throughout to ensure high quality audibility and music playback. A number of local wall volume controls were also installed to provide control of music source and volume levels in the bar and cafe/restaurant areas.
A dual channel true diversity wireless radio microphone system was installed. Used for events and competitions these microphones enabled important communications to inform and co-ordinate staff and competitors as well as commentary announcements.
