How much does it cost to join BIBC?
There is a 'one-off' joining fee of £30. In addition, an annual subscription of £120 is payable.
How much are your rink fees?
Players are charged rink fees of £4 per person for each session. A session usually lasts two and a half hours, or you can pay rink fees in a lump sum.
There are different rink payment methods at present as we are trying to be cashless. Just ask reception for details
What if I haven't played bowls before but would like an opportunity to try out the game before committing myself?
We operate our 'Community' scheme for precisely this purpose. Training sessions by qualified instructors, usually on a one to one basis, are arranged to help you decide if bowls is 'for you'. The scheme provides for five sessions at a cost of £5 each. All equipment ie shoes and bowls is included in the price
I enjoy Bowls but am not competitive
That's great! Many of our members are not 'high flyers' but appreciate and enjoy the social side of being part of a great Club. They can just 'roll up' to play with friends or join a group of like minded members. No pressure is exerted on anyone to participate in competitions.
I enjoy Bowls and I am competitive.
Then we are the club for you! In the winter season (October to April) we have many Winter Leagues operating Monday to Friday between 09.30 and 20.00 hrs. In the summer we also hold indoor Leagues on a reduced basis, and if you like to play outdoors but on an all weather surface, we have our Outdoor Section, which play other outdoor clubs and have fixtures throughout the Summer.
We also hold internal competitions played amongst members for the appropriate club title. View winners and finalists and competitions available by choosing the appropriate links in the menu. If interested please contact Reception at the club or use the contact form.
