“Following the success of our inaugural Australian Pairs competition back in September, we are delighted to be running it again this season, our 100th as a bowls club. In the hope that the proposed roadmap, for a full return to sport continues, we are planning to host the competition again on Saturday 11th September.
While it’s un-clear what restrictions, if any, will be in place at this time regarding social distancing and the appropriateness of providing catering, we are 100% committed to running the event and will ensure that we take precautions to be line with any safety guidelines at the time.
As last year, there will be space for 24 pairs, with 4 groups of 6. Based on feedback from last year’s event, we have increased the number of ends per game and are looking to introduce a further round of games to accommodate quarter-finals (allowing 2 teams from each group to play again).
As usual, the bar will be open all day (running to guidelines at the time), with unlimited tea, coffee and snacks inclusive of the entry fee. There will also be a BBQ and a raffle on the day. A prize fund of £720, with £400 to the winners.
