Short Mat, is a social evening played on Thursdays between 6.00 pm and 10.00 pm during the winter months from October until the end of April.
It involves 10 teams of 4 people playing at all levels of ability, who have a lot of fun. The mat is laid in the early afternoon giving people the opportunity to practice should they wish.
During the evening the bar is open if you fancy a tipple with your team mates or a chat with friends.
If you would like to join us next winter, add your name to the list which will be displayed on the Club noticeboard next September.
We are restricted to 40 players who are able to come on a regular basis, but we welcome anyone who would like to come on an occasional basis in which case you could fit into any team on the night where a team may have an absentee. If so add your name to the occasional list.
All are welcome, if you don't want to bowl come and socialize with members over the cold winter months, It is worth getting out of the armchair for!
