Monthly Sports/Club Profile

This month we focus on Kesgrave Short Mat Bowls Club

History and Development

Kesgrave Short Mat Bowls Club has been in existence for more than 20 years and has a membership of 40 local players.

The Club meets at Kesgrave War Memorial Community Centre on a Tuesday (apart from the 3rd Tuesday in the month) from 6.30 pm and some Sundays between September and April. Club nights are for friendly “roll ups” or club competitions.

As well as club nights, the Club is active in two leagues – the Ipswich and District and Deben Leagues.

The Club recently purchased two new mats through the generosity of a grant from the local charity S.P.A.R.K. and run a Charity Drive which has raised funds for local charities which commonly are ones which have benefited members.
