Child Okeford Short Mat Bowls Club

Child Okeford Short Mat Bowls Club

Our friendly club has now been going for over 20 years and currently has around 20 members.

Consent to publish obtained by J. Osborne

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, see the 2018/19 fixture list below.

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.

If you are interested come along or ring for further information from:

either John Osborne (Secretary) (01258) 863713

or Linda Brown (Club Captain) (01258) 860357

What better way to spend a cold wet Saturday afternoon in November ? Playing bowls of course. Our open pairs competition was held on 24th November and in a closely fought series of matches was won by two deserving winners , Cherry Kley and Derek Holdeman [Right] , seen here with Linda Brown [Club Captain] and Mike Brown our Chairman. Permission for photos to be shown given.
