Bowls is a great social sport and an excellent way to get some exercise, get out of the house and meet new people, whatever your age or ability. At West Berks IBC you can play at your own level and at a time that suits you. Our club is thriving, currently has 530 members, and is open 12 months of the year.

Our next official OPEN WEEKEND is on Saturday and Sunday, 28th and 29th September from 10 am – 2 pm with a new coaching course starting on Saturday, 5th October, 2024.

But maybe you don’t want to wait until then?

During the summer months, we are pleased to invite you to visit the club, have a look round and enjoy a FREE Taster session. So why not come and see what you can do on the green and we’ll take it from there!

All equipment provided, just bring flat soled shoes.

We have full disabled facilities, free parking and being indoors you can play bowls, whatever the weather, in superb air conditioned premises seven days a week.

It has been medically proven that Bowls improves your general health and helps to strengthen the immune system. Playing a game of bowls gives your muscles and joints good anaerobic exercise because you are not giving your cardiovascular system a workout.
During an average game, you will:
*Bend more than 40 times
*Walk about 1260 metres
*Swing your arm more than 40 times to deliver a bowl weighing more than 3 lbs.
This gives your muscles and joints good exercise as well as exercising your mind as you try to outwit your opponent!

We are pleased to announce the launch of the brand new West Berks mobile phone app. We hope this will be a useful resource for our membership!

The link below will take you to the app:

The app will allow you to:

  • Book and pay for roll ups
  • Book and pay for league matches, competition matches and friendlies
  • Top up your membership card
  • View fixtures and tables for all weekly leagues

Should you use it to pay, please don’t worry about a receipt as we will be able to see who has paid through the app. For your league matches, pop a note in the rink bag saying “paid on app” and we will sort the rest!

If you don’t wish to use the app, nothing is changing with the current system for paying for your rink, so you can continue to pay as normal using your membership card.

Please follow the link below to access a guide on how to use the app. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to pop in and see me in the office or give me a call on 07881 772404.
