The North Devon and North Cornwall Short Mat Bowling Federation was established in 1987 to promote the game throughout the area.  Over the years it has grown to its present size of 38 Clubs and over 500 players.  The geographical spread is from Morwenstow in the West to Anstey in the East; and from Ilfracombe in the North to Halwill in the South.  Players are all registered with the national governing body, English Short Mat Bowling Association, through their respective County Associations, Devon County Short Mat Bowling Association and Cornwall County Short Mat Bowling Association

Competitive matches are played both in the main winter season and, to a lesser extent, during the summer months.

Message from our Secretary

It is with regret that I have to advise you that due to circumstances beyond their control High Bickington are having to withdraw their B team from Division 7 of the Afternoon Triples League but will continue to maintain the A team in Division 5.  We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
