Short Mat Bowls is played in the Clubhouse during the winter months when the green is closed. Session fees apply. It is an ideal way to keep active during the winter months and also offers the opportunity to keep in touch with your fellow club members.

Short mat sessions run on: Tuesday, Thursday & Friday mornings from 10am; Monday to Friday afternoons from 2pm and Thursday evenings from 6pm.

Sue Jolin is our Short Mat Organiser and this year's short mat sessions lists can be accessed on the Members Only page.
