Short Mat Bowls


In the spring of 2019, the club was able to purchase a mat for Short Mat Bowls, and earlier modifications to the internal layout of the clubhouse gave us the space to use it.  At the end of the summer outdoor playing season, we moved indoors and began regular Short Mat sessions.  These continued through the winter months with around 10 regular players, until the Covid-19 lockdown forced us to close.

Restarting Short Mat play

Now that our (short) summer season has ended, we are able to re-start Short Mat sessions, subject to the COVID-19 COMPLIANCE GUIDELINES FOR SHORT MAT BOWLS.  All players must comply with these guidelines, and must book a session through this website before turning up at the clubhouse.

Booking a session

*** Following the Government announcement on 31st October, we will be unable to play Short Mat Bowls in the clubhouse during the period of the new national restrictions.  Consequently, all sessions from Thursday 5th November until Wednesday 2nd December inclusive have been removed from the booking system.  The restart on 3rd December is of course dependent on the restrictions being lifted by that date. ***


You can book a Short Mat Bowls session by clicking on this link to the Eventbrite ticketing system and following the instructions on the screen.
