We are a group that are all old age pensioners, this is not a requirement but most of our members are in their seventies and eighties. We play short mat bowls in Shrewsbury House and games are in-house friendly affairs. Teams are picked randomly each session.

We also compete in the Crooklog Friendly League which we have won in recent years and the trophy is on display in the house. We also run an in-house competition for those members with a competitive spirit but no presssure is put on anyone to compete.

Short mat bowls is an all-year sport unaffected by weather and it does not require a permanent location as the rink mats can be rolled up and stowed away. This makes it particularly appropriate for small communities as it can be played in village halls, schools, sports and social clubs, hotels etc. where space is restricted and is also required for other purposes: it is even played on North Sea oil rigs where space is severely limited.
