Hastings Open Bowls Tournament

PRESS RELEASE
2020 Hasting Open Bowls Tournament
10th-15th August 2020 CANCELLED

The Tournament Committee, with great reluctance, feel it would not be safe to hold the Tournament this year due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus Outbreak. Although Government Guidelines may be somewhat lessened by August, the Committee feel they cannot ensure an appropriately safe environment if normal numbers of competitors & their guest's were to use the facilities at White Rock Gardens. Neither does the committee wish to place their wonderful team of volunteers possibly in harms way.

At this moment in time, the End of Season Charity Tournament (Sunday 27th September) remains a possibility BUT the Committee will judge the safe viability of said nearer the time.

The 2021 Tournament (9th-14th August 2021) will go ahead as planned subject to Government Guidelines at that time.

Please look out for announcements on this website.


The Hastings Open Bowls Tournament has been held annually since 1911 and is a Five Star Tournament licensed by Bowls England. It is a mixed open one week tournament.

It is played at White Rock Gardens commencing the second Monday in August each year. The Charity open mixed triples competition, mainly in aid of local charities, is held on the last Sunday in September each year and marks the closing of the outdoor bowls season. The Hastings Open Bowls Tournament consists of Ladies' Singles, Men's Singles, Ladies' Pairs and Men's Pairs and Open Triples event where teams can be mixed or single sex. Lawn bowlers enter from various lawn bowls clubs in England, the UK and abroad. The Hastings Open Bowls Tournament greens overlook the English Channel. Accommodation is available in the heart of 1066 country where there are numerous attractions to be found in Battle and St. Leonards.

In addition, as befits a seaside town, the pier was completely refurbished and is proving very popular with locals and visitors alike – it won the prestigious RIBA Stirling prize 2017. Also close to Hastings & St. Leonards are the towns of Bexhill on Sea, Eastbourne, Rye, Tunbridge Wells and Brighton. The Hastings Open Bowls Tournament greens are close to Priory Meadow Shopping Centre.
