The Club is actively seeking to increase its membership from 460 to 600. We welcome anyone with an interest in bowls whether you are new to bowls or an experienced bowler new to the area. Whoever you are, we would like to meet you and welcome you to our club.
There is an urban myth that bowls is something you do when you retire. Indeed, many people do, but if you have seen bowls on TV you will know that the National squad are mostly in their twenties and thirties.
At WBIBC you can play at a level that suits you regardless of your age, ability or experience.
There really is something for everyone from ‘turn up and join in’ 2 hour sessions to more competitive bowls at League, County and National level. The majority of our members play in Club league games two or three times a week but the choice is yours. We also enjoy weekend friendly matches against other bowls clubs when we play for 3-4 hours and then have a two-course meal afterwards, all for just £9.
Your first indoor bowls ‘Taster’ session is always FREE so why not give it a go?
Existing Members: remember you can earn Club Tokens when you recruit a new Member- see the Introduce Members and earn Club Tokens page
After your first free session, you can join as a Temporary Member for £25 which entitles you to 13 weeks coaching. After coaching you then have the option to upgrade to Full Membership, less the £25 already paid
Coaching sessions are held on a Saturday morning from 8.30 – 10.30 am in the Winter season (September to April).
