Greater Manchester Short Mat Bowling Association held their annual Triples Championships this weekend at Etherow Indoor Bowling Centre. The events saw eight teams of 3 bowlers battle it out over the weekend in a bid to win trophies and places at the ESMBA National Short Mat Finals, held at Melton Mowbray in April. This is the third high level short mat competition to be held at Etherow IBC and there will be many more to follow.

We’re very grateful to GMSMBA for choosing to host their event at our venue and to our sponsors, Techniheat Plant Services.
