New Members

The Club is actively seeking to increase its membership from 530 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 £12.00.

Your first indoor bowls ‘Taster’ session is always FREE so why not give it a go?

BEGINNERS COACHING – our next Open Weekend is on Saturday, 28th September and Sunday, 29th September, 2024 from 10 am – 2 pm.

**If you would like to give bowls a try before then, please email email hidden; JavaScript is required for a FREE Taster session and we will try to arrange informal coaching sessions for you throughout the summer months**

Official weekly coaching will start again on Saturday, 5th October 2024 when you can join as a Temporary Member (valid for 3 months) for £25 and start an 8 lesson coaching course on Saturday mornings from 9 am – 11 am.    Yes, that’s 8 x 2 hour sessions of coaching by our qualified coaches for just £25!  Further coaching is then available for just £4 for a 2-hour session.

If Saturday mornings are not convenient for you, we also offer coaching on Monday evenings from 5 – 7 pm starting in October 2024.

As a Temporary Member you may also book a rink for a practice session outside of coaching but a rink fee is payable at the normal rate.  If you decide you’d like to carry on bowling after completing the coaching course and 3 months membership, you must upgrade to Full Membership at the pro rata fee pertaining to the month of joining.

**For any further information, please call Angela on 07729 183373 or email email hidden; JavaScript is required
