We love bowls as much as our customers do, and in 2017 we were delighted to sponsor the World Indoor Bowls Championships for a fourth year running - this time as Just!
Just off to Potters
What better way to kick off 2017 than with the fantastic annual World Indoors Bowls Championships? From 13 to 29 January, bowls fans gathered at the Potters Leisure Resort in Norfolk for this fantastic event – and we were there too!
Did you know?
We spoke to hundreds of bowls fans last year, finding out what it was they loved most about bowls. Responses ranged from “because I am better at it than my husband” and “it keeps the doctor at bay” to “it keeps me active in retirement” or even “I can’t play darts!”
We love these insights into what makes Potters such a varied, fun and engaging environment - and it’s why we’re always so excited to be there each year.
Unfortunately, the 2017 tournament ended on 29 January. For future reference, the BBC usually provide extensive TV coverage of the Championships from week three onwards, meaning you can watch the tournament as it reaches its exciting conclusion. We’ll keep you updated when next year’s tournament rolls around.
The World Bowls Tour website also has a full tournament schedule available, complete with day-by-day results. For those who want to know the ‘who, how and where’ for each day of the tournament, their YouTube channel is a great way to catch-up on the action too.
