Short Mat Bowls

Why not try Short Mat Bowls?

Twice a week Short Mat Bowls is played at the community centre by an enthusiastic group who enjoy the exercise, the fun and the laughter among other club members. There’s a slightly more serious side as local leagues provide the challenge for teams. Games are played either at home or away on a regular basis. Some competitions involve a weekend match and there’s a variety of friendly games to be enjoyed. You will be made very welcome and tuition is given if you have never bowled before.

So why not give Short Mat Bowls a try? Monday and Tuesday evenings from 7.15 pm you can call into the community centre, meet other players, probably recognise people you see around the village and embark on something entirely new. Afterwards you can enjoy a drink at the bar as you recall the bowls that didn’t go where they were intended. Over many years the club has enjoyed good social

The annual membership fee is £15.00 plus £3.00 subscription to the Bourne End Community Association. £3.50 is payable per evening and tea/coffee and biscuits are included.

Don’t hesitate to contact Christine Thomas for more information. She’ll be happy to talk to you about the club and send you more information.

Here at hiya bucks we go on regular walks exploring the local towns, villages, public footpaths, gardens, rivers, lakes and more! We love getting out and about discovering new places to visit and we thoroughly enjoy going to local events and getting involved with the community. We hope to inspire others to step out of their daily routines and see more of our Beautiful Buckinghamshire.
