Short Mat

At Staines Bowling Club we play Short Mat bowls in the clubhouse over the winter season.
We play twice a week most weeks from the end of October to the middle of April, on Monday evenings and Friday afternoons. Both are very informal and friendly occasions. On Monday evenings the bar is open and we play from about 7pm to about 9pm - or longer!
On Friday afternoons we play from about 2pm to 4pm, with a break for tea and biscuits and a chat in the middle.

Short Mat is a very popular form of bowling, being played at all levels. Click on the video at the right to watch an example of play.
