Short Mat Bowling


Join Bradworthy Short Mat Bowling Club and enjoy a game or two whilst meeting old friends and making new ones.

We hold club nights every Tuesday at around 7.30pm between mid-September and mid-April every year.

Short mat bowling

We play matches against other North Devon village teams if more competitive bowls is of interest.

On Saturday 12th November Bradworthy SMBC hosted their charity tournament for the H J Wickettt & Co. Shield. This tournament is sponsored by H J Wickett and is now in its 17th consecutive year. Clubs from all over North Devon & North Cornwall had entered and 16 teams of three bowlers each

(48 players) played three matches each commencing at 11.00 a.m.


Bradworthy lady members provided a lunch and an afternoon tea and the result was in doubt until the final wood was bowled at 4.50 p.m. The team from Stratton won with Torrington as runners up. Keith Prance of H J Wickett presented individual trophies to both teams together with the Shield to the winners.



All proceeds from the tournament are donated to local good causes.Bradworthy Short Mat Bowling Club will be celebrating their 20th anniversary.

There is also outdoor bowling at the Bowls Club for Spring and Summer months.
