About the Aldermaston Bowls Club (up to March 2023 was known as AWRE Bowling Club)
The Bowling Club was founded in 1956, and the existing Bowling Green was officially opened on April 23rd 1960. The first match played on the green was against the County Presidents team, which ended in victory to the County by 72 shots to 55.

Once a member all the facilities of the AWE Rec Soc are available to you
The green is located within the grounds of the Rec Soc, behind the Rugby Club building which is to your right as you approach the main complex. The Green is open from mid-April to mid-September. During the week the green is open from mid-day, the mornings being reserved for upkeep and maintenance by the grounds staff. At weekends the green is open from dawn till dusk.
Changing rooms are located next to the green and are accessed via the steps and balcony facing the green. There are separate facilities for gentlemen and ladies. Notice boards in the changing rooms carry details of competition draws, team selection notices and any other information that may be of interest to members.
The Club will have teams in three leagues during the coming season.
Tuesday night Ladies triples (Basingstoke & District) Ladies only
Wednesday night triples (2 team Whitchurch Division 2 & 4) (Mixed)
Thursday afternoon Triples (Basingstoke and District (Mixed)
Club games are played in Club shirts and Black trousers, for rollup there is no code.
To prevent damage to the green it is important that the correct footwear is worn; bowling shoes, together with a full range of other bowling equipment, are available from the local bowls shop in Mortimer.
The Way Forward
These notes should help you to become familiar with the workings of the Club, but only you can improve your bowling ability. Practice as often as you can, enter the competitions and put your name down for the matches. You will soon be noticed and asked to join the leagues.
