Short mat bowls is an indoor sport in which players attempt to score points by rolling a heavy ball along a fairly flat surface, to gain as many shots as possible by getting their bowls nearer to the jack than their opponents, and so outscore them. The game is a modern variation on Lawn bowls from which the game is derived.
The game is played throughout the winter in the Restaurant area of the Clubhouse on Thursday evenings. Membership is currently closed and a waiting list for members wishing to join is available however this is also over subscribed.
The weekly competitions are run under the stewardship of Bernard Lawlor and Peter Byrne.
