Short Mat Bowls Club

Who we are

We are the Chieveley Short Mat Bowling Club, formed in April 1999. The club currently has some 48 Members drawn from Chieveley and neighbouring villages (from Thatcham/Kintbury in the South, to Lambourn in the north).

Who can join?

Membership is open to any person, young or old. If you would like to join this friendly and growing club please contact our Secretary, or just come along to a club meeting.

Where and when we meet

We meet in Chieveley Village Hall on each Monday afternoon (2.15pm - 5pm), and each Thursday evening (7.15pm - 9pm - Note not 9-10pm) .

Tea/coffee and biscuits (cakes perhaps if a Member's birthday!) are available at a mid-time break.

New to short mat bowls?

  • We can provide tuition if required to prospective new members, on Monday afternoons before normal play commences
  • The club has sets of bowls that anyone can use, so no need to buy your own
  • The only essential requirement for anyone wishing to play is use of flat-soled shoes.

Club Events

  • We hold some events on Sundays (e.g. club singles & pairs competitions, friendlies with other clubs)
  • We hold a triples event on selected Thursday club nights through the winter
  • We hold an evening Christmas dinner/party, and a Presentation dinner in the Spring

Leagues and Competitions

  • We enters teams in the Wantage & District Assoc. knock-out cup & summer league, and in the Oxon. Winter league (Vale Div. 1)
  • Members also enter various National, Regional and Oxfordshire County events
  • Many club members attend a weekend bowling event at Hayling Island in December each year
