Getting Started



Wokingham Bowling Club welcomes all new bowlers.

Whether you are an established bowler who has just 
moved to the area, or are someone completely new to bowls, we 
will make you feel very welcome.

We're a very friendly club so feel free to call in at 
any time and someone will be there to show you around. 

Membership enquiries can also be made by using the enquiry form on this site.


  NEW BOWLERS 


The best way to start is to come along to our
open day on Sunday 13th May (10am - 2pm)
where you can give it a try.
Please come in flat soled shoes (eg trainers).
We provide the bowls.
All ages welcome.

Otherwise, please get in touch by one of the means
 on the 'contact us' page.
In the meantime the video at this link shows you the basics of the game.


 

TUITION

For inexperienced bowlers we provide coaching. This usually takes place on a Friday evening. Coaching follows on from our Open Day (see above). We make a small charge for the 6 week course, but this is refunded if you then join the club.
In a bowlers second year we provide free "follow on" training to help them develop their skills.


     
PLAYING   
Once you've licked the basics you can enjoy the game through;



  • Our Monday and Wednesday afternoon "webber". Here members just turn up and are randomly drawn into teams (usually triples - 3 a side) to play a game.  This is the way all new bowlers get into the game and develop their skill.
  • Our friendly matches against other clubs. As a new bowler you will be encouraged to  take part in these. On average we have 2 games a week.
  • In your 2nd season you can (should) take part in  our club competitions.
  • Also you can  earn a place in one of our many league teams.
  • You can turn up at any time for a "roll up" with the new friends you will have made.
