Indoor Bowls



Hi everyone.

We’re trying to establish if people would be interested in playing indoor short mat bowls to the English short mat bowls association rules from October to March in and around South Ribble. If there is sufficient interest then we have Leyland premises in mind to promote the sport in the borough and organise the initial start-up this year.

So what we need is you to let me know how many, if any, of you and your "circle of friends" would be really be interested in doing this socially or competitively during midweek nights/days from 1st October 2014 to 31 March 2015. Please reply and complete quantities in table below.

Just give me a rough ballpark figure for number of times a week by how many people both day and night times.

Thanks in anticipation.  

The bowls, mat etc will be provided so all people have to do is turn up, pay a fee, (few pound a game) and state if they want social or competitively type short mat bowls. 

If anyone is interested in long mat/full rink indoor bowls as well then again the possible uptake would be useful if such premises became available.

Please note that both short and long mat would be to Sports England Youth development requirements as well for legacy reasons.

Once we've collated feedback for participation levels then will keep you informed of progress and how it will be structured and any further developments such as the need for National coaches, volunteers etc.

                                                                                                         Quantity for  
                                                                                               Day                        Night

                                     Team Bowls  =

                                     Team Bowls  =
