Short Mat Bowls

Come along and join in a sociable and fun game of Short Mat Bowls.

Short Mat Bowls is very similar to indoor bowls but – as the name suggests – is played on a much smaller scale. Bowls have less distance to travel after delivery, so weight is less of an issue. The aim is to roll your bowl so that it gets closest to a small white ball, known as the jack. Players take it in turns to roll their bowls, each either aiming to land theirs closer, or even try to knock their opponent’s bowls away!

The session is open to both men and women in the 50+ age group or those who access our Exercise Referral service.
