Bowls In Fenny Compton

A new sports club is due to start next week, aiming to bring the tension, adrenaline and buzz of competitive spirit to a south Warwickshire village.

Perhaps not quite as dynamic as formula one racing, short mat bowls is nevertheless proving increasingly popular, with the new Fenny Compton Short Mat Bowls Group being the latest addition to a growing number of clubs in the area.

The group will meet for the first time on Tuesday 21 September in Fenny Compton village hall, with weekly meetings scheduled to start at 7.30pm. The cost will be 1 per session and it will be open to everyone who would like to play bowls.

Stratford District Council has provided support in setting up the Fenny Compton group, with the loan of equipment, instructors, advice on funding and help with promotional material. Further information of the new group is available from John Unitt on 01295 770349.

Earlier this year the second short mat bowls tournament took place at Stratford's community sports centre with a record 23 teams taking part, many of which also took part in the first Stratford district short mat bowls league last year.

The district council has also helped many of the clubs in the league, and since 1994, 15 short mat bowl clubs have been set up with council support.
