Set in the tranquil and rural background of Hooper’s Field with its surrounding Woodland Trust area, our bowling green is, without doubt, one of the best in the Swindon area and, unusually, we have extensive parking facilities. Our conservatory clubhouse provides a pleasant outlook over the green and has a licensed bar.
The club welcomes new members of all ages and abilities and is proud of its equal opportunities ethos and its reputation for friendliness.
The green is open between the middle of April and the end of September each year and is available daily for informal play (roll ups). We have both men’s and ladies’ teams in local leagues and, at weekends, play friendly matches giving everyone the opportunity to play and enjoy the game.
Our club currently has 6 qualified coaches who are available to give help and support as required.
An annual Open Day is held in conjunction with the other sports clubs at the complex to encourage sport for all the family: usually in May. During the winter, we hold a variety of social events: bingo, quizzes, beetle drives, cheese & wine evenings.
WBC is highly competitive in local leagues at various levels. However, more relaxed friendly matches are also available against local and touring clubs, usually at the weekend.
