DEADLINE for entries to one of the west’s most popular men’s open bowls tournaments is just a few days away, on Wednesday, April 20.

Players from all over the South West and the Midlands will be competing in the event at Clarence Park, Weston, from June 19-25.

The tournament, which is in its 79th year, is played on three greens at the home of Clarence men and ladies and Wessex ladies bowling clubs.

Prize money for the singles, pairs, triples, mixed pairs’, Sunday mixed triples and gala fours is substantial. But the main attraction for most players and spectators is the tough competition and friendly atmosphere in a beautiful setting just off the seafront in Weston.
