OUTDOOR BOWLS

The green normally opens on the third Saturday in April for outdoor bowling to commence and is closed on the third Saturday in September. Subject to rink availability, “roll ups” are allowed to take place each day of the week.

Beginners and novices are required to complete a coaching course administered by the Club’s qualified coaches before being considered for membership. On average six sessions, which normally take place on a Tuesday morning or Saturday morning, are reckoned to be necessary to learn the basic skills.

A fee of £10.00 is charged for the course, but this amount is deducted from the subscription should the beginner/novice become a playing  member. Novices who have paid £10 for coaching may roll up with no charge during the 6 weeks coaching course.

SHORT MAT BOWLS

 

Short Mat Bowling commences immediately following the closing of the green and lasts until the second week of April. Bowling takes place in the clubhouse where two rinks are available.

For Short Mat members the roll up fee indoors is  £1 per session

Regular morning and afternoon internal Club sessions take place on Mondays and Thursdays and subject to mat availability play is possible everyday of the week after 10 a.m. The majority of matches are played on a competitive basis but some friendly matches are also arranged.

The Club is represented by four teams in the East Devon & District Short Mat Afternoon and Evening Leagues. In addition, internal Club competitions are held for those members wishing to take part.

 

SKITTLES

 

Skittles commences immediately following the closing of the green and lasts until the second week of April. Skittles takes place in the clubhouse where one alley is available.

No Match Fees are paid as such but an agreed contribution is made by each player to pay for the services of a “sticker up” and for the food provided.

All matches are played on a competitive basis and the Club is represented as Seaton Bowling in the local league.
