Palmer Park Bowlers have a variety of skills and backgrounds. Belonging to a club like ours can provide a year round involvement including clubhouse activities in the winter months. Social, friendly, purposeful, plus... the odd game of bowls . (Not that odd.) Open to visitors soon.

The Yates Cup is still played for between Caversham, Prospect Park and Palmer Park Bowling Clubs. Do you remember when the Reading Chronicle had guest cartoonists sketching teams and events?

Probably the greatest Lawn bowler of all time...

Bowls England is saddened to learn of the passing of the man regarded by many as the greatest lawn bowler of all time, David J. Bryant CBE, at the age of 88.

David won five Commonwealth Games gold medals, eleven World Outdoor Bowls Championship medals and nine titles at the World Indoor Championships during an illustrious career.

He was widely recognisable as the face of bowls and was renowned for using a to***co pipe whilst playing. He was awarded the MBE and then CBE for services to lawn bowls.

David Tucker, Bowls England Board Chair, said: “David was an icon for many decades, whose name was synonymous with our sport. He was well-respected by all who knew him. I was fortunate to compete against David on the green on many occasions, often coming on the wrong end of the scoreline, but a match against him was always a pleasure and includes many memories that I will never forget. My thoughts are with David’s family and friends at this time.”

Lots of work going on at the Club to get it season ready.

Hope if you use Palmer Park you'll notice the trimmed hedges on the right, the front fence is being repainted.

Internally we have done a lot of repairs, roof cleaning, bench refurbishment and lots of garden replanting and tidying.

If you are passing on a Saturday morning and want a look around just open the gate and pop in.
