Old Windsor Angling Club,
In 2008, OWAC celebrated its Golden Anniversary, but has always been a friendly Members Club based on Thames River fishing, with a varied fixture list visiting many other fisheries and Clubs.
The present HQ is our Clubhouse at Home Park, Windsor, and now we are managing the fishing on Home Park on behalf of RBWM, we really are THE local Angling club. In addition, we have access to fishing at Old Windsor, Potts Field, Cookham, Clivedon, The Jubilee River, as well as seven miles of the Wey Navigation canal, 30 miles of the Basingstoke Canal, and we offer Reading and District Angling Association membership as an option.
We are pleased to accept anglers of any sex, age, or experience, and will help and encourage new anglers on request. Our meetings are on Tuesday evenings at the clubhouse, around 8.30pm, and we arrange matches on Sundays, with some Wednesday evening matches in the Summer.
Old Windsor Angling Club is a member of Angling Trust, supports the good work being done by Les Webber (“Gets Kids hooked on Fishing not drugs or crime”) at Wraysbury and is affiliated to Thames Valley Angling Association, Basingstoke Canal Angling Association and Reading and District Angling Association.

The BIG DINNER, organised by Ascot Inner took place on Friday, 20th March, at Cheapside Village Hall, near Ascot. A magnificent £1062 was raised for the charity 500 miles. This charity supports the development and delivery of prosthetic services in Malawi and Zambia. Given each artificial limb costs in the region of £175 to fit and produce locally, at least 6 people in Africa can now look forward to a better and more rewarding life.
They meet monthly on the fourth Wednesday evening at Mill Ride Golf Club, in Ascot, to enjoy dinner and often, a speaker or presentation. If there is a fifth Wednesday in the month, we join with Ascot Rotary for dinner and a speaker.
There are usually two major fund-raising events a year, together with Inner Wheel Day in January. Other events include trips to gardens, the theatre and other venues.
The three objects of Inner Wheel are very simple. They are to promote true friendship, encourage the ideals of personal service and to foster international understanding. Inner Wheel is a caring organisation, not only to its members, but also to others outside its circle.
Friendship is the core of all that is done and achieved by members of Inner Wheel. Wherever there is an Inner Wheel Club, no matter in which country, you are made very welcome. Friendship and fun abounds as members work together to help others less fortunate than themselves, not only in this country, but overseas.
