Set in the Heart of Binfield Village
The Binfield Club is situated in the village of Binfield a civil parish in Berkshire, England. The village lies 2 miles (3.2 km) northwest of Bracknell, 3 miles (4.8 km) northeast of Wokingham, 8 miles (13 km) south-east of Reading. The village has a chequered past and has been the home to famous poets, lords and more recently the Sultan of Brunei. Renowned for its brick and tile industry the area now is made up of family homes and the local businesses who support them including The Binfield Club.
The club can be found in the centre of the village on the crossroads of Terrace Road and Forest Road. Initially formed in 1889 as a library for working men it soon expanded into a small-size clubroom, a committee room and stewards living quarters. Over time the clubroom was lengthened, and a new games room was added and improvements to the bar area.
In 1918 the members and trustees bought the freehold of the club premises and started to improve the facilities. The club continued to grow through the twenties, and also during World War II it was a post for the Air Raid Precautions division. During this time, the backbone of the club was the support of the village’s sporting elements including cricket, football, darts, billiards and various tabletop games.
These days the club is made up of a large function room, a large dance floor and bar area, an additional smaller function room, a full-size snooker room, two professional pool tables and a committee room. We have a full kitchen, and a full barista bar.
We have regular raffles and quizzes with cash prizes. The club also has a busy social calendar, and many groups, clubs and other organisations take advantage of our great facilities.
