Best of bowls to all players! The Gold medalist will represent AB at the Canadian Indoor Championships to be held at the Pacific Indoor Bowls Club, Vancouver October 21-26, 2019. We are awaiting confirmation from Bowls Canada as to whether additional spots for the Silver medalists will be available.
Note that the Canadian Champions will represent Canada at the next World Indoor Championship. This is the latest note received from Bowls Canada regarding that world event: “In the past, the winners of the Canadian Indoor Singles Championship would represent Canada at the next year’s World Bowls World Cup event in Warilla, Australia. New this year, we’ve received word from World Bowls of the following: It has been further proposed and initially agreed by World Bowls that the hosting of the revised ‘World Bowls Indoor Championships’ would rotate on an annual basis between UK/Northern Hemisphere & Warilla Bowls & Recreation Club, Australia thus maintaining the excellent ongoing relationship with the Club. World Bowls has advised that the English Indoor Bowling Association has agreed to host the inaugural World Bowls Indoor Championships in April 2020 and details of the host indoor club in England will be announced in the near future. Please note that the playing dates for the 2020 event are scheduled as being 20-24 April 2020, subject to level of entries.”
