Whilst Bowls is a long way behind other sports in terms of rewarding those at the top of the sport such as Golf, Darts and Football, the sport is lucky to benefit from a lot of individuals/ clubs around the WORLD who are giving ANYONE who wants to compete against other bowlers for a reasonable prize fund the opportunity to "Tour" the country, COMPETE, LEARN, ENJOY, TRAVEL and PLAY BOWLS.
The ones noted here in alphabetical are:-
1) Lawn Bowls
Open Singles Circuit which has built on the great "Planet Bowls" brand and has risen out of the August 2015 ashes of "World Series Bowls" (Mr Stephen Roberts), see a separate website for this. www.worldseriesbowls.co.uk.
2) Short Mat
Sort Mat Players Tour is great fun for all bowlers to play in, is nery friendly, welcoming and gives Bowlers to chance to play Bowls in "foreign lands" and the banter works in ALL languages #bowlsbanter
