As part of our NEW LOOK, we would like to extend an invitation to ALL clubs in the area, to come and join in with our programme of games and competitions.

There is no requirement to register players, but a small annual fee will allow that club to join the BSMBA, so that all its members may take part in our activities.

For further information please email us on:

Welcome to the NEW LOOK

Buckinghamshire Short Mat Bowling Association


Membership of the BSMBA is now open to ALL short mat bowls clubs within the County of Buckinghamshire.

There will no longer be individual registration but clubs may belong to the Association for a small annual fee and all their members will automatically be included.

The Association in its new form, will continue to look after the interests of players and those leagues which are currently operating within the County.

Competitions organised by the BSMBA will be open to all individual members of those clubs.

It is hoped that this new format will be of interest to clubs within the county, which have not, in the past, been registered with the Association.

News Items:

It would appear that the OLD BSMBA website is still live as it has not been removed from the host platform.

At the request of the ESMBA the logo on that site has been removed but the links remain for all who wish to visit the ESMBA site.

The OLD site now contains a “redirect” function which should bring visitors to this page and a lot of historial data has been removed.

Over the coming weeks and months, it will be transformed into an add-on to this site so that more information can be stored and displayed.

We will keep you informed.

NEW THIS MONTH


FRIENDLY TRIPLES COMPETITION

On Sunday 14th November, 22 players travelled to Harold in Bedfordshire, for a friendly game of Triples against 24 players from the Host team.

Everyone played three games over 9 ends with 2 woods, and some played 4 times to make up the numbers.

There was some excellent bowling during the day and with the end result being 30 points to both teams, it was unanimously agreed that it had been a very successful day.

(If the result had been on shots rather than points, the hosts would have won by 202 shots to 184) Well done to all who took part and a huge vote of thanks to the hosts who made us very welcome.

A return game has been arranged at Handy Cross for Sunday 5th December.

Pictures of the day can be seen at the foot of the right hand column.
