Liddesdale Short Mat Bowling
The club meets in the village hall throughout the Winter season on Monday evenings from 7pm till 9.30 and Thursday afternoon between 2-4pm. Short mat bowling takes place on three x 20 metre mats and uses the same bowls as for Green Bowling. This is not as easy as it looks but is great entertainment with plenty of laughs. Scores on the Mondays are cumulated for the entire season so an overall winner can be announced. Play is usually by teams of two or three, picked at random, so any newcomers do not have to stand alone.
There are three separate knockout competitions: The Triples, held in early March; The Singles, held in late March, and The Pairs, held mid April, usually on the last night.
Admission is £2 for both Mondays and Thursdays
New members are very welcome, especially juniors, who only need to pay £1.
