Looking for a venue for a club tour?

We've have had a number of successful matches against clubs touring locally and also by those either on the way to their tour, or on their way back home.  We can offer you a buffet on arrival, a meal after the match, tea & biscuits or any combination of your choice.  For those on a rest day we are only a short walk away from Reading's famous Oracle shopping centre or how about a walk beside the Kennet & Avon canal?  There is even a bus stop right outside the club!  For further enquiries send us an email.

In a very successful year, Reading teams won both the Men's and the Ladies' competitive leagues in Berkshire.

   

Reading achieved a fine victory in the KL Division 1 Final against Tilehurst on Sunday 9th September, played at Wokingham Bowling Club on a lovely sunny afternoon. Having taken a good lead on two of the four rinks in the early stages, the game became a lot more intense when Tilehurst took the jack into the ditch on the 20th end of one of the rinks and achieved a 5 with a stunning shot. This was followed by a 6 on the 21st end, at which the remaining Tilehurst teams gained a new momentum! There was wonderful play from both teams as they battled for the prize on the last few ends of the game but the Reading team kept their cool, rose to the occasion and had a well deserved win overall!

 
   

Following our recent promotion to Division 1, the Thames Valley Ladies afternoon league team has been focused on improving their game and results this season. With excellent leadership from our TVL Captain Linda Robinson and commitment from all of the players in making Thursday games a priority, we exceeded our expectations and managed to win the Division! We won 9 games, drew 2 and lost 3 gaining 94 points as well as a very commendable shot difference!
