History

La Mata

Bowls was first played in Mojacar at La Mata. The La Mata club was founded in 1994 playing on a grass green. Sadly the premises closed in December 2010 and the Club was unable to continue. The image shows the old bowling green in 2019.

The slide show below is from December 2010 just before the green closed. (Diane Reynolds collection)

However through the efforts of the members and with the support of the Town Mayor and Servigroup Hotels a new artificial turf green was constructed adjacent to the Marina Mar Hotel.

The green opened on the 7th March 2014 and the club was renamed Mojacar Bowls Club.

The slideshow below shows the construction process.

 March 2018 saw the eagerly awaited completion of the new enclosure which had been about a year in the discussion stage of the project, then finally ~ not even a brief but heavy rain storm could stop or even delay the finishing touches.

The new enclosure financed by the Mojacar Ayuntamiento under the guidance of Ricardo Escudero Director Servigroup Hotels (Mojacar), will be a much valued addition to the existing facilities enjoyed by our bowls club.

The new enclosure will give a spacious and comfortable relaxation area offering complete protection from the occasional bad weather as well as much needed shelter from the sun during the greater majority of the year. The enclosed area is large enough to hold considerably more than the current club membership with ease and could even enable various functions to be held with some style and comfort should the need arise.
