Elham Village Hall
Short Mat Bowls
Members of all ages from in and around Elham meet at the Village Hall to play this popular version of indoor bowls twice a week.
The bowls, used on the special mats laid out for the games, are the same as those used for outdoor lawn bowls, and the fairly simple playing rules are basically the same as for the outdoor game.
The only uniform required for the weekly club sessions are a pair of ordinary flat shoes (to ensure that the special mats are not damaged).
Note that the owning of Bowls is not a requirement for any introductory sessions, nor an initial requirement when joining the club.
September to April:
Monday afternoons from 15:30 to 18:00pm
Further information can be found by contacting any Club Member or by contacting Maggie Tappenden
Tel: 01303 863467
Club members annual subscription is £5, with a weekly club green fee of £2.50 per session.
The weekly bowling sessions are treated as a 'none too serious', social get together with many lasting friendships sealed over the tea and biscuits offered halfway through each session.
Potential members (8 years and up) are invited to come along to any of the sessions to watch the game being played, and to see if they would like to become more involved in this gentle exercise sport.
Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
