Britain leads to way for bowls

Holiday Heat welcomes the news that Wales is to host the 2019 World Bowls Atlantic Championships in May.

 

The event, from the 10 to 23 May, brings leading men and women from 20 nations to Cardiff and The Vale of Glamorgan.

 

Welsh Bowling Association Secretary, Terry Hopkins hopes the event will help Wales "to put forward a bid for future World Bowls Championships".

 

This is in addition to the announcement that Birmingham has been selected as the host of the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

 

The decision means that the lawn bowls events will take place at Victoria Park in Royal Leamington Spa – the home of Bowls England.

 

Bowls England Chief Executive, Tony Allcock MBE said “The lawn bowls facilities at Victoria Park at Royal Leamington Spa are world-class and it will prove to be a magnificent venue for the Games. In addition, we expect there to be long-term benefits for both players and spectators who utilise the facilities year round”.

 

Birmingham 2022, which is expected to take place between 27th July and 7th August 2022, marks 20 years since it was held in Manchester in 2002, the last time the Games were held in England.
