Members of the Kingsdon Short Mat Bowls Club

The club first started in the late 1980s as part of a regular meeting in the Charlton Mackrell Community Hall before moving to Kingsdon Village Hall in 2001.  Many of the original members continue to play today which only emphasises the enduring attraction of both the game and the club itself.

Members are not just from the Kingsdon and are drawn from a number of nearby villages.

Apart from the two regular club session the club plays friendlies against other village clubs and are keen to attract new members.

Membership is mere £10 per year and £2 per session (per person) including tea and biccies!
