The new short mat season is about to begin.
With regard to practice, the official roll-up day is Friday, when two mats will be down.
Informal practice is subject to availability and can be on Monday, Wednesday or Thursday, when one mat is down, unless there is a home match.
There is no practice on Tuesdays, as this is the carpet bowls roll-up day.
As is the case with outdoor roll-ups, a small fee is payable on the official roll-up day. At other times you just pay for any refreshments.
