Bowls Trader & Short Mat Players Tour Launch New Shirts Range

Following their recent confirmation as our 2016 World Cup sponsors, the Short Mat Players Tour are excited to announce the start of a new partnership which sees Bowls Trader become our official clothing retailer.

To mark the beginning of this dynamic association, we are launching two new shirt ranges. The ‘SMPT World Cup’ and ‘SMPT Team’ ranges are now available for players and supporters to purchase direct from

The ‘SMPT Team’ range features a design based on the original black, red, and white sublimated shirts that the team have worn over the last couple of seasons, which have proven popular with the players on the Tour. With a choice of three additional designs available, each shirt in the ‘SMPT Team’ range contains our logo and comes with the option to personalise it by adding your name, free of charge.

If you like the look of this year’s World Cup shirts, then the ‘SMPT World Cup’ range may be of interest to you.  The designs for all eight countries at this year’s event are available in both men’s and women’s sizes from XXS to 6XL. Whichever shirts you might wish to purchase, Bowls Trader enables you to place individual orders, avoiding the need to buy in larger quantities.

Bowls Trader’s owner, Steve Broome, explained why he is keen to work with the Short Mat Players Tour: “Bowls Trader is delighted to partner the SMPT as we look to branch out into the exciting format of short mat bowls. We strongly believe the SMPT is a professionally run set-up which adds real value and credibility to the sport and we are proud to come on board as the official clothing retail partner. We are really looking forward to meeting all those involved during the forthcoming season!”

SMPT Director, Philip Mills added: “We are thrilled to be working alongside Bowls Trader. Steve shares our ambitious outlook and our passion for bowls, as well as being committed to providing excellent customer service.  We believe this partnership will be beneficial to bowlers who will soon be enjoying the aesthetically pleasing, high quality and great value new products on offer.”
