Holmer Green Short Mat Bowls Club
Holmer Green SMBC was founded in 1988 and is a playing
section of the Holmer Green Sports Association located at The Sports Pavilion in
Watchet Lane, Holmer Green.
The Sports Association Pavilion has only sufficient room for a single short mat

However in 2002 the Club designed and built an outside facility

on a Tuesday evening and who represent the club in the Bucks Single Mat League.
A further 12 members roll-up on Tuesday afternoons and there are another 16
members who join us to play on the outside mats in the summer.
A small committee who are elected at an AGM each year runs the Club.
The Current Chairman is Bob Day, he has been in Office for the past 6
Each summer since the opening of the outside facility the Club invites 15 local
