The outcome was the founding of Windsor and Eton Bowling Club.
The club is based in Barry Avenue by the Thames.
The open day on Saturday, April 27 runs from 10am to 4pm.
Tea, coffee and burgers will be on sale with a tombola and plants stall.

Bowls beginners are invited to come along and try out the sport.
