Old Basing Bowling Club – Fancy Giving Bowls a Try?

With summer just around the corner and Covid restrictions beginning to lift, why not try a new sport? Lawn green bowls is a popular sport for all ages and abilities played in lovely surroundings at the Old Basing Recreation Ground. At Old Basing Bowls Club we have three Open Days at which beginners and interested bowlers are warmly invited to give bowls a try free of charge, see our great club facilities and mix with our friendly club members.

The Open Days are on Saturday 17th April (10am–4pm), Sunday 25th April (10am–2pm) and Sunday 29th May (10am–4pm).

We have over 70 members. Our new bowlers would say “Come and give bowls a try –it’s brilliant. I made a lot of new friends in a short space of time”. You can choose to bowl in a variety of ways – from informal friendly matches, to local league games and competitions right up to County standard. We play through the summer from late-April to mid-September.

New members benefit from half price membership in their first year and access to free coaching from qualified colleagues. There are many health benefits to outdoor bowling too!

We are a friendly and sociable club who continue meeting through the winter months via games evenings, bingo and quizzes. The well-stocked and cheap bar is a further attraction! The Club also arranges an annual residential tour to play other clubs at a seaside location. During this winter and spring our Club House facilities have been extensively modernised to provide a great place to relax, eat or enjoy a sociable drink with others.

We would be very pleased to see you at one of our Open Days – you will be sure of a friendly welcome from our sociable members. Bowls are provided for you to try, though it would be great if you could wear flat soled shoes. Just pop in on our Open days or for further information, please contact Maurice Hockley on 01256 421867 or check out our website at www.oldbasingbowlingclub.co.uk
