The Haddenham Short Mat Bowls Club meets on Tuesday evenings, from 6.30pm, in Haddenham Village Hall, with the occasional additional session on Friday evenings.
This year the club has started a new afternoon session, on Thursdays, from 2pm to 4pm.
Eric Smith reports that "for the last 20 years the club has provided enjoyment for locals, as well as people from the surrounding areas. Additional players would be welcome and no experience needed as we are happy to show new members all that is necessary to enjoy this easy friendly game."
"We have two teams that play in the Aylesbury Friendly League where we play other teams in the Aylesbury Area, and this brings us in contact with other clubs and their members — so its a sociable and fun activity."
If you'd like to know more, just come along to one of the club's sessions in the Village Hall, or telephone: David Gander on 01844 291151 or Eric Smith on 01494 569377
