The highlight of the indoor bowls calendar, we will be hosting bowls’ biggest tournament for the 24th year running. For 17 days, the world’s best players will compete for the most prestigious title in the sport, live from Potters Resort’s International Arena, and you could be there too.
We’re delighted to announce that tickets are available for each day of this year’s tournament. That means you can enjoy a great day out with friends or fellow club members as you take your seat in the stands for an entire day’s action.
As well as the prestigious World Singles Championship, the opportunity is there for you to watch the best of the World Pairs Championship, Mixed Pairs World Matchplay Championship, Ladies World Matchplay Championship and the Under 25’s tournaments. The stakes will certainly be high with anticipation mounting when spectators take their seats knowing that they are about to experience the very best that World Bowls has to offer.
With the great atmosphere that the Championships bring to Potters, many of the popular days sell out very quickly, so now is the time to secure your day visitor tickets.
Playing Schedule is correct as at 14/10/2021 but is subject to change without notice.
