The Bowls Match for the cup was played inside this year between the Short Mat, and Outside Bowlers. The winners were Short Mat, getting revenge for being thrashed outside last year. The game is played each year to celebrate Norfolk Day and is not an issue of winning or losing, but to enjoy the evening with friends.

After the match we had food and a raffle, which was brought in by the players. Our thanks go to Bespoke Outdoor Spaces for donating the a lovely glass Trophy which was represented to the winning captain Chris Roberts by the outside President Jethro Free.
If you would like to bowl inside or out come a long and have a go.
