Welcome to Burghfield Bowls Club
Burghfield Bowls Club was founded in 1990 by a group of 15 local bowlers specifically to play mixed friendly matches. After several moves around the local area, we settled at our current green, with an official opening in Spring 2014.
We are affiliated to the Royal County of Berkshire Bowling Association, and Bowls England.
We enjoyed a visit from Bowls England in 2015 to celebrate our 25th anniversary, and they visited us again in 2019 to mark the opening of our new clubhouse and bar. Somewhat belatedly (due to Covid), Friends of English Bowling visited in 2023 to celebrate our 30th anniversary.
Our green is often used by Bowls Berkshire and the local leagues, a tribute to the hard work done in maintaining it by our team of volunteers, led by a massive effort put in by Kevin and Gary.
We welcome new members, both experienced bowlers and newcomers to the sport. For new bowlers we can arrange a short coaching course that will get you started in bowls, and we will guide you through your initial familiarization of the sport, and on to playing in matches and competitions – see our ‘Membership’ section for more details.
Currently, the club has teams in the Men’s BDBA and Kennet LV Leagues, the Thames Valley Ladies League and the Oddfellows Mixed Triples League, also members enter for several County Competitions. In addition the Club has a full fixture list of mixed friendly matches. We also run the weekly Ding Dong tournament, where any playing member can join in, and newcomers can test their skill and development, and get to know other members.
Since its formation the Club has prided itself as one that maintains friendliness towards visitors and members.
