Hastings Open Bowls Tournament

PRESS RELEASE

2020 Hasting Open Bowls Tournament End of Season Charity Tournament (Sunday 27th September) is CANCELLED.

The Tournament Committee, with even greater reluctance, feel it would not be safe or viable to hold the Charity event this year due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus Outbreak AND the current Government Guidelines restricting the event size (Max 30 people including non-bowlers, which basically means only EIGHT Triples realistically), obviously NO Raffle, NO Food & most importantly NO SIT DOWN in the Pavilion, not to mention all the other distancing & no touchy restrictions .... all making the event untenable (& somewhat uncomfortable especially if it turns chilly).
The Committee hopes that some form of normality might return by the start of next Outdoor season. We wish you all a safe & healthy Winter rest and hope to see you next year sometime.

The 2021 Tournament (9th-14th August 2021) & 2021 Charity (26th September 2021) will go ahead as planned subject to Government Guidelines at that time.

Please look out for announcements on this website as we emerge tentatively into the New Year.

Keep Well, Keep Safe

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.
