Keeping physically and socially active is shown to bring a range of benefits, especially as we get older.

At Cheltenham Bowling Club, members of all ages enjoy year-round sporting activity as well as a busy calendar of social events - the perfect combination!

This year Home Instead has been proud to sponsor the Short Mat indoor league which is played during the winter months when the outdoor greens are closed.

Amanda Hamer, Director of Home Instead was delighted to be invited to present the prizes to the winners of the Short Mat league at a recent club meeting, accompanied by club President Graham Griffiths.

Cheltenham Bowling Club was conceived in 1883 and its first home was at the Winter Gardens before it moved to its current home in Suffolk Square, in 1917. Surrounded by beautiful Regency buildings, the Club has two Cumberland turf greens and a pavilion, with a bar and meeting rooms, which has recently benefitted from improvement works.

The club has around 150 members, who play in club, county and national matches, as well as 70 social members. New members are always welcome.

Following the opening of the greens on 13th April, the new season is now underway and Home Instead is once again very pleased to be supporting the club, this time sponsoring the Afternoon Triples league. Having learned more about the game and the skill involved in indoor play, Amanda is looking forward to meeting more of the club members and seeing how matches are played outdoors - hopefully in glorious sunshine!
