Short Mat Bowls Club


Short Mat Bowls Club


I joined our Short Mat Bowls Club just over eight years ago, shortly after moving into the village.  At the time I wanted to meet people and make friends and although I had never played short mats bowls before, or even held a bowl, I thought this seemed a good way to start.  I was made very welcome on my first night and despite being a complete novice they showed a great deal of patience together with a lot of helpful hints and bags of enthusiasm.  That night I forged many friendships and although that was my main aim I came to enjoy the bowling as well.

With the passage of time many of our current players cannot always attend as much as they used to and we are keen to attract new members.

We play every Wednesday evening, at the Village Hall, between 7.00pm and 9.30pm, except in the bad winter months when we meet Wednesday afternoons.

The cost of the evening is £2.00 which includes tea and biscuits and if you do not own any bowls there is always some to borrow when you first come.

The evenings are filled with much chat and a lot of laughter as well as very gentle competition;  so, if you are new to the local area, recently retired and looking for a new hobby, or would simply like to give bowling a try (and you do not have to be of a certain age to do so), why not come along.  We are all waiting to welcome you!

If you would like any more information please call me on 01553 842453 or Janet or Terry Robertson on 01553 841309.
