Brendan Charles is association manager of Horndean Community Association, which manages the Portsmouth Road hall.

He said: ‘We are looking to start it up again after Covid.

'The mats and bowls have been locked away for long enough.

‘As the weather is getting better, we thought this would be the ideal time to get the mats out and start playing again.

‘It’s an all weather all year round game - so there is plenty of opportunity to enjoy this each week of the year.’
