Loddon Vale Indoor Bowling Club was opened in 1991 and is situated in the Basingstoke Leisure Centre with free parking provided next to the club entrance. LVIBC was built on land leased from Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council and is owned by its members.
It provides a friendly environment for those of all ages to experience the sport of bowls throughout the year. The club runs competitions, leagues and friendly matches where bowlers from beginner to expert can enjoy a game that is accessible to them all. Our coaches are avaiable to help all of our members.
The club is open throughout the year with bowling sessions commencing at 10.00 a.m. and continuing into the evening. Whilst catering for our experienced bowlers with entries in County and National competitions, we also provide special sessions where new bowlers can practice their skills and learn from a number of our more experienced members. There are also social events for members providing additional opportunities for members to meet off the bowling green.
Our Junior Team Manager runs sessions under the EBYDS (English Bowls Youth Development Scheme) where our younger bowlers can improve their skills together. The scheme is run annually for bowlers in each county in two groups - Juniors under 15 years of age and Seniors between 15 and 18 years of age. The winners and runners up in each group in each county go on to the Regional Final and the top players from this contest go on to represent the South Region in the National Finals later in the year.
Loddon Vale has been well represented in the past and has won the National title on occasions.
