Short mat bowlers host open sessions to find new recruits
Saltford Short Mat Bowls Club is holding open sessions on Sunday, October 7, Sunday, November 18, and Sunday, December 9, from 10am-1pm.
Anyone of any age can turn up and have a go completely free, with all equipment supplied.
Short mat bowls is played by in excess of 24,000 members of clubs across the UK and even more across the world.
We at Saltford have a strong membership, some of whom are purely social bowlers, while others are more competitive and play in the Bristol & District League. Several of the latter are members of the Avon County Squad.
This form of bowls can be taken up at any age, and, depending on ability, does not take very long to become reasonably proficient. You can experience exhilaration, frustration, humiliation and triumph almost at the same time, which makes the sport thoroughly rewarding and enjoyable.
We have sessions that would suit most people – Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, from 2pm-4.30pm and again on Friday from 7pm-10pm. Come along and try at Saltford Hall, Wedmore Road. A warm welcome awaits new bowlers, with or without experience.
