Bowls balls on an indoor green astroturf.

Short mat bowls is a social sport played indoors. Our sessions are a fun way to learn how to play bowls and improve your skills in a friendly and relaxed environment.

Games are played between teams of two (pairs) or three (triples) usually over six ‘ends’. These sessions are for those who have played before and those who would like to try something new.

Equipment is provided, but you can bring your own bowls if you prefer.
