Great Yarmouth Festival of Bowls is the biggest outdoor open bowling event in the country, with more than 1800 participants competing in mens, ladies and mixed teams for singles, pairs and triples titles over four weeks of play at the Britannia Bowling Greens on the seafront.
Spectators can really enjoy the event too, with plenty of benches and seating around the arena from which to watch the day's play.
The 2014 Festival of Bowls is set to take place from Sunday 24 August to Friday 19 September 2014, organised by the Great Yarmouth Bowls Committee, under the watchful eye of Tournament Manager Derek Webster (BEM) in association with the Tourism Division of Great Yarmouth Borough Council.
This year's 69th Festival of Bowls warranted a special press release to celebrate the continuing of the event and the securing of significant sponsorship from Specsavers. And as if that wasn't enough, an additional bowls tournament, the Open Triples Tournament, has been announced for July 2014.
It is recognised that the Great Yarmouth Festival of Bowls could not go ahead without the valued financial support received from a number of local and national sponsors. If you are interested in becoming a future sponsor of this event please call 01493 846343.
** Please be reassured that improvement works currently in progress on North Drive will not affect the bowls tournaments.
