MARK SHORT MAT BOWLS CLUB
In August 2008, six members of the Biddisham Club decided that they wanted to play more competition bowls and hold tournaments to raise money for charity. We wanted a village hall that would take three mats - essential for tournaments - and so we checked out all the facilities in the area to find the right place. We came across Mark Village Hall and the chairman at the time Mr Neil Corkish, and soon came to an agreement on storing the mats and equipment. The six founding members each put a sum of money into the club to purchase two second hand mats and other equipment to get the club started and named the club Mark Village Short Matt Bowls Club, "The Swallows".
At the present time, we have raised £4,000 for various charities through our tournaments. We currently have 30 members and welcome new members and guests who would like to come along and give it a try.
The Club meets every Tuesday afternoon at 2.00 pm and Thursday evenings at 7.00 pm in the Village Hall
