Slade Indoor Bowls Club

History

Slade Indoor Bowls Club, together with Buckingham Snooker Club, were collectively formed as the Slade Recreation Club in 1989.

With the aid of a lottery grant, councillors were able to raise money to convert what used to be a HGV storage depot into a recreation club, which would support both activities.   Both clubs have their own committees and as such are independent of each other.

In August 2017 Slade Indoor Bowls Club was fortunate to secure grant aid from AVDC Community Chest and the Heart of Bucks Foundation, the Buckingham Town Council, and with the addition of club funds and donations from members, work began to improve the facility.  The outdated and inefficient heating system was replaced, new LED lighting units replaced the old fluorescent strips, with the cross beams transformed from the original iron-red to silver-grey - and most importantly a new playing surface was installed.  All this at a total cost of £65,000 - a big commitment for a small club but made possible by the external funding.
