Great Yarmouth Festival of Bowls

Great Yarmouth Festival of Bowls is the biggest outdoor open bowling event in the country, with more than 1100 participants competing in men's, ladies and mixed teams for singles, pairs, triples and fours titles over four weeks of play at the Britannia Bowling Greens on Great Yarmouth 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 2019 Festival of Bowls is set to take place from Sunday 26 August to Friday 20 September, organised by the Great Yarmouth Bowls Committee, under the watchful eye of the Tournament Co-Ordinator, Brian Grint, in association with the Marketing, Engagement and Events Team of Great Yarmouth Borough Council.

Entry forms for the 2020 tournament can be found here or alternatively to have a form sent to you or if you have any queries, please telephone Sheila King on 01493 846344 or email her. The closing date for entries for the Festival of Bowls is 1 June 2020.

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 846344.
