Child Okeford Short Mat Bowls Club
Our friendly club has now been going for over 20 years and currently has around 20 members.
We play in the Village Hall on Monday afternoons (2.00 to 5.00 p.m.) and Thursday evenings (7.30 to 10.00 p.m.).
The Club, which is affiliated to the Dorset Short Mat Bowls Association, has a team in Division 4 of the Blackmore Vale League in which we play against other clubs in the area.
We hold several in-house competitions on selected Saturdays throughout the year, social evenings based on the game of New Age Kurling and enjoy an annual Christmas Buffet Dinner. All of these events are held in the Village Hall. The Kurling set is also available for hire by non-members.
The annual subscription is £25 and members also pay £3 for each session they play.
New prospective members from the Village are very welcome and can have three free sessions, with no obligation, using the Club’s equipment to see if the sport appeals to them. There is no age limit, upper or lower, and we can explain how to play the game.
