The Directors would like to reassure all members that we are proceeding with caution and that your safety and enjoyment of the game remain our number one priority.
The EIBA have issued the following statement “. . . With many Clubs already operating limited schedules and/or have summer leagues operating under Step 3 restrictions, the EIBA believe consideration for these to continue as is until the end of the summer arrangements would be prudent.”
The club will therefore continue to operate under the present Step 3 restrictions and will not move to Step 4 of the Roadmap until we feel it is safe to do so.
We therefore ask members to proceed as before ie check your temperature and use hand sanitiser on arrival and wear a face covering in designated areas. Mats and jacks will be sanitised after each session and the club will continue to be ‘fogged’ every day. The aircon will operate during opening hours and if we all maintain social distancing we can keep our club Covid secure.
The pandemic has taken a toll on most of us. Perhaps you now feel you need to get out a bit more, to meet new people and take more exercise, but still keeping within a Covid secure environment.
Well, have you thought of giving indoor bowls a try?
It’s a great social sport for all ages and abilities and you can choose when to play and at what level.
* The rules are simple and easily picked up, the level of skill is up to you!
* Play with like-minded bowlers from as little as £1.80 per hour
* Facilities for the less able, including wheelchairs, ramps, aids etc
WBIBC is the premier indoor bowls club in West Berkshire with over 450 members, six superb air conditioned rinks, an active social side, club bar prices and free parking.

West Berks Indoor Bowls Club is proud to be one of the finest indoor bowls clubs in Berkshire.
Our purpose-built Indoor Bowls Club houses six superb air-conditioned rinks with a comfortable lounge/bar and restaurant facilities.
The Club’s aim is to encourage its members to play and enjoy the sport of indoor bowls regardless of their age, ability or experience. Coaching is available on Saturday mornings for anyone who wants to learn how to play or to improve their game.
For those with a competitive streak, we hold internal and external competitions up to County and National level as well as a varied programme of Ladies, Men’s and Mixed internal Leagues and friendly inter-club matches.
However, if you are looking for a gentle, social yet healthy approach we have regular two hour sessions where you can play with a group of like-minded bowlers for just £3.20.
New Members are always welcome and your first ‘taster’ session is always FREE. Our team of qualified coaches will ensure that you will be made welcome and enjoy your bowling experience with us.

We are pleased to announce that the Summer League Programme will start, as planned, on Tuesday, 22nd June. The Tuesday and Thursday Triples and Wednesday Australian Pairs Leagues all start at 7 pm. The five morning sessions continue from 10 -12 noon. Rink availability for roll-ups may be viewed on the Bowlr system on this site but please contact the Office to book a rink.
In order to keep the club Covid secure, we will continue to follow EIBA and Government guidelines until we move to Step 4 of the Roadmap. We will maintain social distancing protocols within the club and also operate the current rink protocols.
Thanks to the superb air conditioning system at West Berks, the changing rooms are now fully open and have a fresh air flow through them. The cloakrooms are also fully open but the separate access rinkside for the ladies remains.
We wish all members a ‘cool’ summer of bowling!
