Short Mat Bowls – inside and outside!
HOLMER Green Short Mat Bowls Club was founded in 1989 as a “playing section” of the Holmer Green Sports Association.
The Sports Association pavilion has only sufficient room for one short mat indoors and therefore the Club play in the Bucks Single Mat League.
In 2002 however, the Club designed and built an outside facility consisting 3 permanent all-weather short mats, which is believed to be the only one of its kind in the world.
This outside facility is used from April to November each year and attracts many members from other local clubs who enjoy playing short mat bowls with us in the summer sunshine.
The Club hold regular “roll-ups” at the following times:
Inside (All year around) Tuesday evening. 7.30pm to 11pm.
Outside (April-November) Thursday afternoon 2pm to 4pm
Sunday morning 10am to Noon
We are always pleased to see potential new members and welcome them to come along to one of the above roll-ups. Alternatively please give a call to Bob Day 01494 712284.
Each year the Club run a number of competitions and in July invite 15 Clubs from around the County to compete for the “Holmer Green Masters Cup”.
Club successes include:
The Hazell’s Challenge Shield: Winners 1997 and 2007
The Triples KO Trophy: Winners 2002, 2004, 2005
The Summer League: Winners 2005
