The Club is both proud, and privileged to award Life Memberships to June Skennerton - Club Secretary, and Derek Griffin - Fixtures Secretary in recognition of many years of exemplary service to the club. 

Bowling does not stop at the club during the winter months, as the club plays and competes indoors from October to March as members of the Torbay Short Mat League, playing on a synthetic surface laid out within the clubhouse.  

The club team in this form of the sport of bowling is called ‘The Coasters’, and is one of nine teams in The Bay taking part in the sport.  

The Coasters have finished top of the Cup competition, and now once again go forward to the play-offs in March. The League competition commences in early December, which the Coasters, as defending champions, will endeavour to win yet again.
