Indoor Bowls Club

Martin Beeching from Whiteknights Indoor Bowls Club extols the benefits and invites you to have a go at an open day

Tucked away near the top of Beech Lane, Earley, Reading is one of England’s finest indoor bowls clubs and we are currently recruiting new members.

With seven bowls rinks and 800 members, Whiteknights is a professionally managed club which caters for all levels – from beginners to international players. We are a welcoming and friendly club with a full bar, superb new cafĂ©, lounge plus large on-site car park.

We run regular free bookable taster sessions for total novices and all ability levels. All you need to bring with you is flat-soled shoes, such as trainers.

Why not reserve a free ‘Taster Session’ at one of our open days on Sundays 1st October or 8th October. Players with experience are also welcome to come along and try out our excellent facilities. If neither date is convenient, then contact us and we will find an alternative time.

To book a session – email our manager Andy Knapper at [email protected] or telephone 0118 986 0759, (if you leave a message, we will get back to you).

The benefits of bowling can be helpful to both your social and physical well-being. Dr John McKenzie (Health & Safety Director at Whiteknights) says: “As people approach middle age and beyond, it is vitally important they exercise regularly.

“Flat green bowls helps build core strength plus improve flexibility and circulation. It can also keep the brain active, so it’s the ideal sport for both able-bodied plus the less able of all ages.

“Above all else, bowling is FUN.”
