For the first time a live blog of the weeks events is being published which you can find using this link http://www.iombowls.com/june-festival-live-blog/
The Isle of Man has been a popular destination for thousands of crown green bowlers since the first bowling tournament took place in 1921.
Over the years the festivals have grown from strength to strength and include new and innovative competitions as well as the highest prize pot of any bowling festival.
Competitions include those for men and women, mixed pairs and tourism and consolation competitions. The festival is also structured so that even if players lose every game they can still play for four of the five days – a great way to ensure your trip to the Island is not wasted if play doesn’t go your way!
All four are located within a four mile radius of one another so getting from one green to another is easy.
