A program of Winter social events is ongoing (see Events Page) and many of our members are now playing indoor bowls at the local indoor venues, or Shortmat bowls at the club or in the village hall.

We are now looking forward to the 2024 season, into February and the new season is getting closer, with opening day on April 21st.

We played a number of friendly games against touring teams last season and we hope they all enjoyed their visit to Marldon and will come again in the future.

Our weekly 'Try bowls' sessions and coaching sessions went well last season and we recruited a number of new bowlers for the club, we are hoping to repeat this again this season.

For anyone who has never played bowls before, the weekly "try bowls" sessions will run on Sunday Mornings from early May 2024. The sessions start at 10am and all you need are flat bottomed shoes (no heels as they damage the grass), all other kit can be loaned while you try out the game. If you are interested, please contact Ray, details are on our Contacts Page, or go to our Membership page for more info. You probably won't be alone as a number of people usually come along to try it out and a few members usually come along to say hello.

If you are a club interested in playing a game at Marldon this year (or next), please contact our Fixture Secretary (he already has a lot of this year's fixtures booked!) using the details on the "Contact us" page.
