European Open - Entries now open!

Bowls Scotland are pleased to announce the launch of a brand-new competition for 2022, the European Open.

The European Open will be held at the National Centre for Bowling, Ayr on Friday 15th and Saturday 16th July. The competition is open to everyone from any nation and will be held directly after the Bowls Europe Championships with many of the countries competing already submitting entries into this new event.

Our annual National Championships also commence on Sunday 17th July, so this is an ideal opportunity for anyone looking to compete on the greens at Northfield before the national finals begin.

The format of the tournament is 3-bowl pairs, and we are looking for 120 entries on a first come, first served basis. The closing date for entries is Friday 27th May with the entry fee being £30 per team.
