Short Mat Bowls
The Martlets Short Mat Bowls Club
The Martlets Short Mat Bowls Club was formed back in 2006 when the only activity members participated in was the odd ’one day’ tournament.
By the summer of 2007 membership was growing and the club entered the West Sussex County League playing in the lowest tier (4th) during 2007/8. Home games were played at Billingshurst Village Hall and they duly won the league and since then have won the 3rd tier, 2nd tier and then the Premier league (1st tier) in consecutive seasons. The Premier league has now been won every year since 2011 making it eight consecutive league titles since first entering the league. During that time the County Cup has found its way to Martlets on five occasions.
Many County titles have come the way of Martlets members and the club pride themselves in the nurturing of new members and bringing them on to be able to play Short Mat Bowls at high level.
We meet regularly during the winter months (September – April) on Tuesday evenings at Bury Village Hall (19:15 – 21:15). We look forward to hearing from you.
