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 has installed a new carpet over a laser levelled floor.
In 2015 the Company installed a new Electronic scoring system.
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
