About us

The Bowls Centre of 8 rinks was originally constructed in the early 1990s by Sevenoaks Council 

and operated by them until 2004.

It then transferred to a private company named and set up by:- "White Oak Indoor Bowls Club".

Since taking over responsibility the Company installed a new carpet over a laser levelled floor. 

In 2015 the Company installed a new Electronic scoring system.

In 2022 following a flood another new carpet was laid.

We now believe "White Oak" is one of the

'finest bowling facilities in the south east'

Later Short Mat and New age Kurling were introduced.

In 2015 the company installed new Short Mat bowling carpets

 

We cater for all types of bowls from Social Roll ups ,in house leagues, friendly matches through to National and Regional Competitions.

The club is open every day during the Winter season and for 5 days a week in the Summer season (closed Tuesday & Sunday)

We offer several types of membership:-

 Full, Disabled, Short Mat, Junior & Social

and we welcome all newcomers

 

We have a fully stocked Bar in a comfortable lounge.

There is an active Social section running Dances, Cabaret nights, Quiz & Bingo Nights, Craft mornings and our own Lottery "200 Club"

The Centre has 2 large function rooms available for hire, suitable for Conferences, Meetings and Weddings. 

Finally we are proud hosts of both the Rotary Club and the Probus Club
