For those visitors who are wondering what short mat bowls is – It is like traditional bowls, using much of the same equipment but played on a mat 1.8m (6ft) wide and 12.2 – 13.7m (40-45ft) long. Designed specifically to be viable for church, school, village and club halls. Some fool however thought it was a good idea to put a white block 38.1cm (15in)wide in the middle! The object is the same as the outdoor version – get your woods closer to the little ‘jack’ than your opponent.
