Bowls players have less than a week left to enter the largest outdoor open bowling event in the country.

The Great Yarmouth Festival of Bowls sees more than 1,200 competitors descend on the seafront of the town across a four-week period of play.

Participants can enter in men’s, women’s and mixed teams for singles, pairs, triples and fours titles at the festival, which is held at the Britannia Bowling Greens.

The event runs from August 26 to September 21 and is organised by the Great Yarmouth Bowls Committee, under the supervision of tournament manager, Derek Webster, in association with Great Yarmouth Borough Council and with the support of local and national sponsors.

This will be the 73rd year of the annual competition.

Entries close this Friday and forms are available at www.great-yarmouth.co.uk

Alternatively, to enter or enquire about sponsoring next year’s event, contact Sheila King on 01493 846344 or Sheila.king@great-Yarmouth.gov.uk.
