..'Warman Leisure Holidays' 
- is run by Mel and Barry Dillon from Oxfordshire who have  been organising Short Mat Holiday breaks
since 1986 and therefore have a wealth of experience in such matters.      Although the majority of these holidays were initially  located in the middle South of England, venues have now also been arranged in the South West and Anglia and bowlers regularly attend from many counties throughout England and Wales.

Warman Leisure Holidays' offer well organised, good competitive bowling, in pleasant company at prime locations, with comfortable accommodation and excellent food  (breakfast & evening meal), at very competitive and reasonable prices - all of which ensures that  many regulars return time and time again!.    Many of the regulars attend several functions during the year and up to three quarters of the places available for holidays at some venues - are often booked up by guests whilst attending the previous years' function!  - that speaks for itself!.

Due to the ever increasing popularity of these holidays new venues have regularly been sought  and various new venues have been tried - the Sand Bay Holiday Resort at Weston-super-Mare was included for 2008, and in 2009 at the Bells Hotel in the beautiful Forest of Dean.   Due to the sale and conversion of the Belgrave Hotel in Torquay to a 'Beefeater Inn' we moved in 2008 our Torquay Festival to the Livermead House just along the seafront and it is still a popular holiday.    Potter Leisure Resort at Hopton in Norfolk was used from 2007 to 2012 but has been discontinued for 2013.

Raffles in aid of charity, are run at all tournaments and the first cheque for 2500 was presented to  the 'Hearing Dogs for Deaf People'  organisation at Lakeside, Hayling Island in February  2000 -  this was money raised during the preceding two years.   Money continues to be raised and cheques continue to be presented - further details are available on our separate page 'Hearing Dogs for Deaf People'.
