The day started very cold with a brisk wind, no members of the public wanting to play, so our 3 county coaches on duty (Andy, Les and Karen) decided to coach some club members. They had only just got started when people started to arrive and as the day went on it never stopped. In all 17 people turned up, which makes nearly 40 over the 2 days. It was a very successful day with 4 new member,s and a total of 13 returning on the following Tuesday evening for Club night, some from the previous open day.
Thanks to Ley for keeping eye on the green for the members, it’s a credit to all involved thanks for the hard work, we may get a game in before the end of the season, it would be a shame to waste the effort
It was very sad today putting up the signs saying that the Club was closed until further notice. Only greenkeeping and essential maintenance will be allowed, as this can be done by a single person.
There is spray and paper towels in the clubhouse for use to ensure areas are kept clean.
Bowls England have cancelled all National Competition and Bowls Wiltshire have cancelled all County Games until 1st July, this will be reviewed in June.
We as a club will be hoping to have Open Days later this year, whilst the Sponsors Day and Gala Day may also need to be moved to later this year
With Beversbrook sports centre closing, the Short Mat Club is closed until further notice.
Thanks to all the members for their support
WE WILL BE BACK
The skittles have been cancelled, however it has been moved to the club pavilion where the membership renewal will take place in, with refreshments!
Please note all membership fees are due by 1st April 2020, whilst competition entries must be made by 2nd May 2020
We were fortunate enough to be given a ‘new’ second hand kitchen. As you can see Martin and Steve are hard at it – the old kitchen is out and the new one is half in. We will have a larger working surface, along with a much larger fridge/freezer and more cupboard space. This will make all catering in the clubhouse easier
Thanks lads, it is appreciated.

We look forward to an enjoyable day of bowling.
Whilst the outdoor bowlers have a rest, the indoor Short Matters celebrate the last session before Christmas – Monday 23rd Dec 2019.
The session included a shorter bowling session and wonderful food that had been brought by the members. 28 members attended and a lot of fun was had by all.
Father and Mrs Christmas were there, along with their little helper and a very attractive reindeer. Other members had lights, festive jumpers and a variety of headgear.
Thanks to all who made it such a success, in particular Mr & Mrs Christmas.
A great night, well attended and organised. Many thanks go to Yvonne and Steve as well as Rita, Ann B and several others for supplying the food and help.
The winners were the Andy Collier team; congratulations to them and to all those that attended and helped make it a fun evening.
