    The members of this 8 rink, purpose-built bowls centre formed a company, Sevenoaks IBC Ltd, in 2004 and took over the running of the bowls club themselves, rather than Sevenoaks District Council.

    Why Play Bowls ?
    Bowls provides healthy exercise all year in a relaxed atmosphere, but at the same time it is a game of skill, providing as much of a challenge as you decide to take on. Games can be played with either, 2, 3 or 4 woods.  Singles matches are normally played with 4 woods per player, whilst other “team” formats can be either 3 woods each (triples) or 2 woods each (rinks).  For preference the club tries to play triples matches, either in the league and friendly matches, or in the in-house club roll-ups.

    How Do You Start ?
    Beginners are made most welcome at any time of year.  You can try out the game for free for 4 weeks (see the details on this page) and benefit from formal coaching and friendly instruction during that time.

    What Happens If You Decide To Join After The 4 Weeks ?
    We run competitions and leagues throughout the year, but for those of you who want more fun and less competition, there are 3 casual, open-to-all club sessions on three days each week (Monday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings) and we are also planning to introduce a 4th session on a weekday evening.  These sessions are where new members usually start to enjoy the game and quickly make friends.

    What Else Can I Do As A Member ?
    There is a social programme of events throughout the year, including quiz and race nights, all the usual Christmas and New Year celebrations, whilst Bridge and Whist evenings are regularly on offer. See the Calendar of Events page for details.
