The Ivybridge Short Mat Bowls Club held the annual charity tournament on Saturday, February 24.

The chosen charity was the Ashburton Dartmoor Search and Rescue team. A total of 28 teams competed from west Devon and east Cornwall in an event which raised £800 for the rescue team. This event which is very popular with Short Mat Bowls teams is held annually at the Ivybridge Community College. The winning team this year was a team from Willand in west Devon.

Short Mat Bowls is a popular sport for players of green bowls to play through the winter months as it can be played in local clubs and halls. The Ivybridge club meets Monday and Tuesday evenings at the community college.

New members are always welcome and training and equipment is available. The secretary can be contacted 01752 691306 for further information.
