ZERO BOWLS – A NEW CONCEPT IN BOWLING

A NEW PAIRS COMPETITION IS IN TOWN – Inspired by:

  • Bonanza Bowls (similar idea but no ‘Zero’ and using 4 different coloured bowls – our format adds a new twist and is done the cheaper way using stickers
  • Graham Carleys UK Open which was originally over a few venues to a final

The opportunity to do this arose sadly with a passing of a good friend at our Bowls Club called Andy Dixon who was pro-change, hated the pettiness of bowls and embraced South Parks ethos. His family who are bowlers of South Park donated a Shield to be played for which we agreed to use for this project. The shield will be held each year by the competition winner.

Andy was relatively young when he passed away and in the short time he bowled he was very popular and became a huge friend to everyone at the club. We are happy to assist with his legacy and as Andy was, we want a ‘no fuss’ event meaning no uniform code, allowance of carpet bowls so kids can be involved etc etc.

So thats why we are here today……….lets make this event go bang!!
