Welcome to the Somerset Short Mat Bowls Association
Further to the ESMBA notice, the ICC semi-finals (both A and Premier teams) have been put back until the beginning of September 2020 due to health advice so there will be no matches this weekend. The National finals due to be held 2nd - 5th April have also been put back until September.
To do our part in restricting the spread of Covid-19 virus (Coronavirus) the SSMBA committee has taken the decision to suspend the Friday night Triples League matches with immediate effect and we will not be hosting any competitions until further notice.
The SSMBA AGM is scheduled for Sunday 14th June. We will continue to monitor the government advice and make a decision nearer the time. Nominations for Committee Positions need to be submitted in good time.
Secretary Somerset SMBA
Somerset SMBA are sad to hear of the passing of Keith Hawkins on Wednesday 11th March 2020.
He moved to Somerset from West Sussex in 2012 to continue his county level bowling and take on a volunteering role on the committee. Nobody could ever doubt his commitment and passion for the game of short mat bowls. He will be sadly missed.
