Short Mat Bowls Section

This section was established during the 2014 winter season as a result of the move to our new facilities at Holbrook in the same year.

Horsham Hotshots

In 2015/16 our short mat bowls team has joined the West Sussex County Short Mat Bowling Association bowls league and entered North East Division 2. We have now registered 24 of our players as members of the WSCSMBA. We asked our players for suggestions for a team name and we agreed upon Horsham Hotshots. In a league of six teams we have 5 home and 5 away fixtures to fulfil through the season.

The short mat section has also introduced its own knockout cup competition called the Redwood Trophy, named after senior bowling club member Archie Redwood who kindly donated the trophy. It’s a non-seeded mixed singles competition to be played annually. We were delighted to have 31 players enter the competition this season, an absolutely brilliant response. In addition, there is also the Championship Pairs competition.


Our short mat players meet every Wednesday evening for a practice night and on Friday evenings for a social get together where they play for fun, enjoy a bite to eat along with a drink at the bar followed by a quiz to round off the evening.
