The short mat section of the club runs from September to March each year during which time our clubhouse is transformed from the summer pavilion into our short mat playing area.
We enter 6 teams into Cornwall Leagues.
4 teams are in the Triples Leagues which play their games in the afternoon and each team comprises 6 players. The games are played on two mats with 3 players on each mat and each player using 3 woods. If there is only one mat available the games are played consecutively.
2 teams are in the County Short Mat League and each team comprises 8 members, 4 playing in each game and using 2 woods each. The games are played consecutively unless there are two mats available and both skips agree to play the games at the same time.
We run five in-house competitions each season. This year they are:
The 2 wood singles competition
The 4 wood singles competition
The 4 wood pairs competition
The 3 Wood Triples competition
The Handicapped Singles Competition
