Carpet Bowls is a form of Short Mat Bowls adapted to be played in Village Halls. Although a degree of skill is necessary, this is soon acquired and the game can be enjoyed at all levels.

The club meets in the Village Hall, usually twice a week, on Mondays and Wednesdays, at 7.30pm. The team takes part in Suffolk League matches as well as other local and County competitions.

This year, members of the club have succeeded in winning the Suffolk County Pairs, Triples and Fours and will be representing Suffolk in the All England Finals.

The club is always looking for new members. If you are interested in joining this very successful carpet bowls club, either give Andy a ring or just turn up on a practice night.

During the season we will be holding practice nights each Monday and Wednesday evening from 7.30pm at the village hall - unless we are bowling in a match.
There are several gaps during the season of 2 weeks. This is to accommodate the future rounds of the Joe Rice Cup or the plate, whichever competition we are involved in.
