2024 British Isles Bowls Calendar Announced

We are delighted to confirm plans for British Isles Bowls events for 2024.

The season kicks off with the British Isles Championships and Internationals at Victoria Park, Royal Leamington Spa, England from Wednesday 26th June to Sunday 30th June. Players from England, Ireland, Jersey, Scotland and Wales will come together to battle for individual and team honours across five days of action-packed bowls. 

Taking the lead from World Bowls, there will be a change to format at this year’s British Isles Internationals to include all disciplines being executed by 15 player teams across both the men’s and women’s events. Every international match will see action across a full green, with each session featuring either three singles and three fours matches, or three pairs and three triples matches, with the score on each of the six rinks contributing to the overall result in each match.

This will be followed by the U18 Internationals at Belmont, Belfast, Northern Ireland on Sunday 20th and Monday 21st July. This event continues to provide international action for Britain’s top young players.

To top the season off, the fiercely competitive British Isles U25 Internationals will also take place in Belfast on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th September, and in line with previous years a men’s, women’s and a joint team trophy are up for grabs. England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales will participate in both the U18 and U25 events.

Looking ahead to this year’s competitions, Bowls Scotland’s Head of High Performance, Kareena Cuthbert, said: “The British Isles events are a fantastic opportunity for an array of bowlers from our National Championships winners to our talented youth to fight it out against traditional rivals to be crowned Britain’s best.

“I am excited about the further evolution of the British Isles Internationals event this year after taking on board feedback to provide an energy charged team environment, whilst also ensuring players can compete in all disciplines on the international stage.

“I look forward to seeing Scotland well represented across all of these events.”
