A unified singles event will be introduced at this year's Weston Ladies' Open Bowls tournament.
THE Weston Ladies’ Open Bowls tournament breaks new ground this year with the introduction of a unified singles event in which men and women will compete against each other.
Deadline for entries to the tournament, which is sponsored by opticians Optika, is just a couple of weeks away, on June 22. The event, which will celebrate its diamond jubilee next year, is being played at Clarence Park from August 22-27.
Tournament registrar Paul Tubb said: “We thought that a unified singles would create a bit more interest in the ladies’ tournament. The format should make for some close matches.”
In addition to the two singles events, there will be ladies’ pairs and mixed pairs competitions, plus the ever-popular all-day triples on the first Sunday of the tournament and a gala fours on the Friday. Teams for the Sunday triples can comprise three ladies or any mixed combin- ation.
