Christmas is coming to the Brampton Lawn Bowling Club

Christmas is coming and Santa Claus will be checking his list.   Ho Ho Ho

All members and their guests are welcome to attend the annual Christmas dinner and party of the Brampton Lawn Bowling Club.  The fun begins at 5:30 pm on Saturday November 28th at the Lawn Bowling Club lounge.  Tickets are $20.00 per person and need to be purchased in advance.  Contact any member of the Club Executive or purchase your tickets at Short Mats on Thursday afternoons.

We look forward to an enjoyable social evening in the Christmas spirit.  See you there.  Come and join the fun of the season.

Short Mats bowling in full swing for the indoor season

The Brampton Lawn Bowling Club has completed a very successful outdoor season for 2015.  League play, tournaments and jitneys were great fun and lawn bowling for everyone.  Congratulations to all of our competitive teams for their great showings at regional, provincial and national play.

With the close of the outdoor season, our enjoyable indoor season of short mats is underway.  Everyone is welcome to join in the fun on Thursday afternoons at Century Gardens Recreation Centre on Vodden Street in Brampton.  For only $5.00 per day, bowlers enjoy two jitney format games, tea and goodies and a great social time.  See you there !  Please be there by 1:00 pm to ensure that teams can be made up.

Never tried the game of short mats?  Drop by and see what the fun is all about.  Short mats is played indoors on artificial greens made of carpet which are much shorter than a regular lawn bowling green.  Regular outdoor lawn bowls are used to play.  The Club has sets of bowls which may be borrowed for the afternoon to play if you do not have your own.  It is a game of delicate touch which anyone can play.
