Autumn Short Mat Festival

Our Autumn Short Mat Festival is another major event of the short mat calendar. You can choose to stay at either the TLH Derwent or the TLH Toorak Hotel while bowling daily on our indoor arena. We lay up to 16 mats on the arena which gives an excellent playing surface. There is lots of opportunity to bowl both as part of the triples competition as well as the optional pairs competition.

Whichever hotel you choose to stay at you will enjoy dinner, bed and breakfast.

Included in the break is a welcome drinks reception giving you a chance to mix and mingle with your fellow competitors.

Our evening entertainment features our great cabaret acts plus the TLH Entertainment Team’s show. With the added advantage of bingo, day time activities and some of the best leisure facilities in Torquay you can be sure that every moment of your stay will be enjoyable and create lasting memories.

If you bowl as a pair or an individual our bowls co-ordinator will be happy to discuss creating a team of 3 for you.

Our resort

There’s plenty to keep you busy with access to our amazing Aztec Leisure facilities, plus a range of daytime activities from our own TLH Entertainment Team. Or you can simply relax in one of our comfortable lounges.


The TLH Leisure Resort hotels are only a 5-minute walk from Torquay seafront and marina so it’s easy to get out and about and blow away the cobwebs during the day. Historic Torre Abbey is situated directly opposite the TLH Toorak hotel. With bus stops close by and the town centre only a short walk away, TLH Leisure Resort makes a great base for exploring the English Riviera and its many attractions.
