Short Mat Bowls Club

Short mat bowls is an indoor sport in which players attempt to score points by rolling a heavy ball along a fairly flat surface 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.



Some of the members of the club form a team to compete in the Carmarthenshire Short Mat Bowls league. The league runs from October through to the following April each year, with weekly matches either played at home or away. We finished the 2014-15 season in second place in Division 1 for the second consecutive year.

Salem Short Mat Bowls Club meet every Wednesday night @ the Village Hall between 7.00pm and 9.00pm. We are a friendly bunch, so why not come along and have a go?
