The club have been in Division One throughout their time and although having been second and often third had never actually won the league until 2012. And we have won it again since then.
We know that ‘bowls’ has a rather old fashioned or elderly reputation but it is not entirely fair, although there are older members, many of the Swansea Clubs do have young (and noisy) blood in their teams. Unlike some Swansea clubs we are not struggling to survive, we, in terms of membership are the biggest club in the Swansea Association. If you would like to come along one Tuesday or Thursday night, or a Friday afternoon, to watch or try your hand please do so. Anyone from the surrounding villages is also welcome to come along or become members. (we have bowls that you can use).
Visitors on holiday who would like a game are also welcome; you could even bring your own team and challenge us! Last year, as a group, we went to the Isle of Wight and played against a team from Freshwater.
Llangennith Short Mat Bowls meet throughout the year in LLANGENITH HALL. We just have room to put down four mats – so things can get busy. Contact:Steve Rimell 386685 or Bill Counsell 386287 for more details.
We would particularly like to encourage some young bloods (noisy or not) especially if they are under ninety five! The advantage of bowls is that it is entirely inclusive, whether, male or female, young or old even playing in a wheelchair, we all compete against each other.
It may not be as cool as surfing, playing pool, rugby or football but it is better than watching TV or playing on a Wii!
Try it, the only danger is you might enjoy it!
Our club continues to thrive with nearly 30 members meeting on Tuesday and Thursday evenings between 7-9pm. Numbers of players and dark winter nights have resulted in us running an extra session on a Friday afternoon between 2-4pm. If you would like to see what Short Mat Bowls is like please come along. It is a game for all ages and abilities, we have bowls available to be used and members are very happy to help new people in starting to play.
