FIXTURES

 

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.
