ECBA Carpet Bowls
The Festival of Bowls is
an annual event which takes place at Potters Holiday Village, Hopton Norfolk.
The event is held over
five days, and although there is a full bowling programme, the
event is more relaxed than the various national championships.
Details of how to book
for the 2019 event will be available here soon.
The Festival comprises
3 different competitions, Fours, Pairs and Singles. No one is
automatically entered in all 3 competitions, so, for example,
if you don't enjoy playing Singles, you do not have to do so,
the choice is yours.
The week starts off on
Tuesday morning with the groups games for the Fours. Each team
will be placed in a group, giving everyone 3 or 4 group games.
The winners of each group will qualify for the Knockout Stages
which will take place on Thursday morning, with the Final rounding
off the week on Thursday afternoon.
The Pairs starts on Wednesday.
Again teams will be drawn into groups, giving everyone 3 or 4
games. The group winners will go forward to the Knockout Rounds
which will be played on Thursday afternoon.
And finally there is the
Singles. Due to the numbers of entries this will be played on
a straight knockout basis, starting on Tuesday afternoon. Wednesday
afternoon will see the competition played down from the last
16 to the semi-finals, with the final being played on Thursday
