Bowls


January 2018 marked our fifth year sponsoring the World Indoor Bowls Championships.

Just off to Potters

We'll be returning in 2019 from 11 to 27 January. Bowls fans will gather at the Potters Leisure Resort in Norfolk for this fantastic annual event and we're looking forward to being there too. What better way to start the year?

Did you know?

  • It's the only world championships to be held in East Anglia.
  • The International Arena seats 1,100 spectators.
  • Bowls is now played at around 7,200 clubs in Britain.
  • A bowling green has been apermanent fixture at Windsor Castle, as Anne Boleyn was a keen bowler, as were the first princess Elizabeth and Queen Victoria. 

Over the last few years we've spoken to hundreds of bowls fans and finding out what they love most about bowls. Responses have 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”. We love these insights into what makes Potters such a varied, fun and engaging environment.

Where can I follow the tournament?

The BBC provide extensive TV coverage of the Championships from week three onwards, so you can watch the tournament as it reaches its exciting conclusion.

You can find a full tournament schedule available on The World Bowls Tour website. Missed a match? Don’t worry their YouTube channel is a great way to catch-up on the action.
