The Imagine Cruising 2024 World Indoor Bowls Championships
After a fantastic tournament this year, we're already looking ahead with excitement and anticipation for what The Imagine Cruising 2024 World Indoor Bowls Championships has in store!`
Experience the world’s best players competing for the most prestigious titles in the sport over 17 days of championship action, live from Potters Resorts Hopton-on-Sea's International Arena.

Five star-studded competitions, one venue
Enjoy the action as the world's top 16 ranked payers take on all-comers for the ultimate glory of winning the signature event. Qualifier Jamie Walker surprised absolutely everyone in 2023 during his run to become the first unseeded open singles champion in 17 years!
Ladies World Matchplay
Watch a selection of the world's best female players, including record five-time matchplay champion Katherine Rednall, compete to win the 2024 edition of this prestigious trophy.
Pairs World Matchplay
The strongest Pairs combinations go head-to-head for this coveted title. Nick Brett & Greg Harlow proved their partnership is as strong as ever by winning their third title in 2023, but can they do it again next year?
Mixed Pairs World Matchplay
There's always a top-class field of male and female combinations in action hoping to claim the Mixed Pairs title, so it's a competition not to be missed. With plenty of smiles and high quality bowls, Cerianne Glen & Stewart Anderson teamed up to lift the trophy in 2023.
Under 25 Singles Championship
Some of the best Under 25 players from around the world have a chance to display their skills on the famed portable rink and compete for this prestigious title currently held by back-to-back winner Daniel Pool. Could the 2024 winner go on to be a future Open Singles champion?
The World's Best Players
We can’t wait to welcome the very best players from around the world to Potters Resorts Hopton-on-Sea, the UK’s first All-Inclusive Resort this year. We caught up with the top 16 ranked players to find out what made them tick.
