Welcome to Chinnor Short Mat Bowls Club.


Founded in 2000 the Club has a membership of approximately 40, and plays in two local leagues, The Bucks Single Mat League and The Aylesbury Vale Friendly Short Mat League, both of which are registered with the Bucks Short Mat Bowling Association (B.S.M.B.A.) and affiliated to the English Short Mat Bowling Association  (E.S.M.B.A.)


Club nights are held on Wednesdays from 7 to 10 p.m. in the Village Hall and there is an afternoon session on Fridays from 2 until 5 p.m. (not 3rd Friday in each month) but we bowl throughout the year. (Some matches are played in the Mill Lane School Hall on Mondays.)


During the Summer months (May to September) we play in the Bucks Single Mat Summer League. This is an informal league aimed at those players who wish to continue playing while their colleagues play outdoors. One of the highlights of the Summer season is the Holmer Green Masters competition which is held on their 3 mat outdoor facility. Over the years we have been fortunate enough to win this trophy and last year we were runners up. During the Winter, (September to April) we belong to two leagues: The Vale Short Mat Friendly League (2 mat) and the Bucks Single Mat League. Both leagues hold additional competitions and most clubs enter teams in these matches.
