Worthing IBC Tournament 2018
The draws for our annual Fours and Triples Tournaments are now published on our competitions page. Thanks as always are due to our tournament sponsors - Focus Investments. Congratulations to Andy Clarke and his four from Worthing Pavilion for winning the £400 first prize. The Triples crown also went to a Worthing Pavilion team this time skipped by Mark Strong who took the £300 prize.

Plastic Cup Recycling
In common with lots of businesses across the UK WIBC is concerned that we do our bit for the environment. From Monday 15th January we ask that all our members place their plastic drinking water cups in the recycling bins with the blue lids available on the sides of the green, rather than in the litter bins which are emptied into our general refuse. Thank you for your cooperation.

Our 5 rink air-conditioned green at 38 metres is one of the longest in the south of England, and with a carpet which was replaced in August 2009, we have a perfect playing surface. New and improved LED lighting was installed in June 2018. Internal redecoration also makes this a very pleasant environment.

There is ample seating around the green for viewing and playing members and large glass windows separating the green from social and dining areas enable clear views of the bowling whilst enjoying a meal or glass of wine.

Facilities are in place for disabled bowlers with a ramp entry onto the green and an adapted wheelchair is available to use if required.

Changing rooms are conveniently placed and contain individual bowls lockers which may be rented annually for a small fee.
