Sydling St Nicholas

Short Mat Bowls Club


The Sydling St Nicholas Short Mat Bowls Club was founded in 1999 and has become one of the foremost social and leisure facilities in the village. At it’s beginning the club had no funds or equipment but plenty of enthusiasm and was fortunate that a Millenium Fund was set up. The Bowls Club approached the Fund for financial assistance and the request was successful, £1600 was granted from the Fund for purchase of equipment. Realising that the equipment purchased would need to be augmented, the Club made an application to The National Lottery Millenium Festival “Awards for All” scheme and was awarded £1313 for the purchase of further equipment.

We meet in Sydling St Nicholas Village Hall on alternate Wednesdays at 14.30. Annual membership costs £5 with a fee of £2.50 per session. We welcome non-members but their fee is £3 per session. Equipment is provided, free of charge. Previous experience is not necessary and the first two sessions are free. Tea/coffee is provided at a half time break.

For the greatest fun, in very good company, at little cost
