The Short Mat 2023/2024 winter season has now finished. We started playing on 19th October 2023 and finished on 4th April 2024, having many weeks of fun in-between.


This season League was very close until the last 3 weeks, when one team ran away with it. However, the 2nd placed team was only 6 points (two wins) ahead of the 8th placed team - so the teams were very well balanced and competitive.

The winning team was (wait for the drumroll):

Team 8 consisting of June Arnell, John Daltry, Mukesh Parekh, Richard Green and Ian Whitehead, scoring 47 points over the 23 games and winning the League by a margin of 10 points. 

Congratulations and Well Done!

Second were Team 6 consisting of Jeni Stonestreet, Sally Hall, Colin Brooklyn, Brian Pentelow and Brian Gillard. They scored 37 points.

On the same points, but 4 shots worse off, were Mervin Field's team, consisting of Sally Barber, Maria Mizen, John Tuff, Ron Bridges and Keith Francis.

Short Mat, is a social evening played on Thursday eveings during the winter months from October until April.

It involves 10 teams of 5 people (from which 4 play each week) playing at all levels of ability, who have a lot of fun. The mat is laid in the early afternoon giving everyone 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. 


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!
