About Us


The Canadian Short Mat Bowls Association (CSMBA) is a recognized national member of the World Short Mat Bowls Association. The World Short Mat Bowls Association is independent from World Bowls, and hence, the CSMBA is independent from Bowls Canada (BCB).

Why We Exist

  • To promote, foster growth and regulate the sport of short mat bowls in Canada
  • To conduct and control National Competitions and Championships and to follow the rules and regulations of short mat bowls as set out by the World Short Mat Bowls Council
  • To select all Canadian Teams travelling to Short Mat World Championships and other International Fixtures

The Sport

  • Short Mat Bowls is an indoor version of lawn bowling played on a 45 foot long x 6 foot wide mat with regular lawn bowls, and a heavier jack. It is ideally suited in Canada because it is not affected by heat, sun, wind, rain, or snow.

Our Desire

  • The CSMBA wishes all short mat clubs to join the CSMBA and grow Short Mat Bowling in Canada
  • Our second season will begin October 1, 2017, and will run until September 30, 2018. We would like you to consider joining for the upcoming year at your earliest convenience. All clubs who join before October 1st, 2017 will be given credit for the entire next season.
