Short mat bowls

Our Short Mat Bowls club began in August 2002, when Ruskington Bowls club kindly donated a mat to us.  Short mat bowls uses the same bowl as outdoor, but is played indoors on a short mat. A 'block' is placed in the centre of the mat ensuring that bowls are 'curved' into the jack creating a challenging game.

The group meet on Tuesdays evenings in our hall, at 7:30pm. When there are sufficient people, we can play on two mats.

The standard of play ranges from absolute beginners to those with much more experience, and friendly, supportive coaching is given to those who are newer to the game.

If you are interested in coming along and trying your hand (and arm and eye!), you will be welcomed.

At Riverside, we know it is important to have fun! To this end, we have a number of social activities each week.

On Tuesdays evenings, our Short Mat Bowls club meets in the hall. Again, you do not have to be old to play bowls as part of this friendly group.

On Wednesday mornings, a gentle exercise class takes place at the church. This is particularly aimed at older people and those with limited mobility or a restricted ability to engage in more vigorous workouts.

These groups are always open to new people, both within the church fellowship and those who are not regular worshipers at Riverside - the more the merrier
