Throughout Swansea some clubs have faced great difficulty in maintaining their membership but, although we are a fairly small community club, we have stayed strong. We play at a good standard and have the benefit of playing on a wonderfully flat and warm floor. Recently because of illness our numbers have dropped from 30 to 20 but we have had some new players and are keen to encourage more to join us to ensure that the club continues for perhaps thirty more years.
Bowls may have a rather old fashioned or elderly reputation but it is not entirely fair as most of the County and International players are young – yes you can play Short Mat Bowls for Wales and we have members who have done so. If you would like to come along to see what it is about or try your hand, please do so.
Anyone from our surrounding villages is also welcome to come along or become members (we have bowls that you can use). Visitors to the area are also welcome to drop in for a game.
The advantage of bowls is that it is entirely inclusive, whether: male or female; young or old; even playing from a wheelchair, we all compete against each other.
Most people play just for fun and we do play friendly matches against clubs who are not in the league but there are more competitive opportunities in the Swansea league and different formats of singles, pairs, triples, or fours. However most of the time the challenge is with yourself and trying to do better especially as your hand does not always deliver the shot you had in your head.
Fancy giving it a go or would just like to watch? Come along on a Tuesday or Thursday evening or contact Steve Rimell 01792-386685 or Bill Counsell 01792-386287 for more information.
If you are a member of a another club reading this and fancy challenging us to a match, please give us a call to arrange a date.
