Short mat bowls is a social way of spending a few hours, an opportunity to meet new people whilst gently exercising. It is a game that can be played by all ages, sexes and abilities all can compete together, a real family sport.


We now have 2 short mats in play and are keen to give the opportunity for everyone to try this sport in a friendly atmosphere at a time to suit.


At present we are running the following weekly open sessions for people new to the sport.  


Tuesday evenings 19:00 – 21:00, with a break for a drink from the bar or tea/coffee.


Wednesday mornings 9:30 am until 12:00, with a break for tea/coffee.


These sessions are free for the first 2 visits and give us the opportunity to show you our amazing facilities and answer any queries you may have, and of course ‘have a go’ at bowling.


For people who already know the sport two free taster sessions are available on the above sessions, so come along and try our facilities.


We will be looking to play some friendly games with other clubs/groups in due course so if this is of interest please see contact details below.
