Newtown Angling Club whilst
based in the Bracknell area draws its membership from all over the South
of England. The Club, which has around eighty members, was formed in the
mid-sixties and enjoys full affiliation to the Reading & District Angling
Association (R&DAA) , Basingstoke Canal Angling Association (BCAA) .
This entitles its members access to a comprehensive range of coarse fisheries
for both pleasure and competition angling.
The Club holds regular outings
to most R&DAA venues, mainly on the River Kennet and the Kennet &
Avon Canal between Reading and Padworth. We also fish their stretches of
the River Thames at Mapledurham, Wallingford and Bablock Hythe as well as
a number of their gravel pits at Pingewood, Theale and Newbury - all first
class waters with good sport and quality fish of all species. Outings to
the Basingstoke Canal are also included on the itinerary.
There are adult and junior championships
to be competed for throughout the season along with many other trophies
awarded for individual matches and specimens.
Monthly Club meetings are held
at the “Winkfield Club”, Winkfield Row, Bracknell, Berks commencing 8.30
pm on the second Tuesday of each month – attendance by associate members
is not obligatory but all members are welcome.
