The Isle of Man’s top crown green bowlers will be able to test their skills against the best in the world as they take part in the Endsleigh Senior County Championships on Sunday May 3. A home fixture will be held at Peel Sunset Bowling Club from 12:30pm with an away game in Shropshire on the same day.

It would be fantastic to see a big crowd at Peel to support the Isle of Man Team on what will be historic and great afternoon of bowling.

Ahead of the Championships, Minister of Education and Children Tim Crookall MHK, whose department includes Manx Sport and Recreation, offered his congratulations to the organisers and his best wishes to all participants, especially those visiting from the UK.

“The hard working volunteers from the Isle of Man Crown Green Bowls Association, and specifically those who have helped deliver their long-established development plan, deserve credit for bringing their vision to life with these inaugural fixtures.

The Championships are considered to offer the highest level of Crown Green Bowls competition in the world. There are exciting times ahead for the sport, after some excellent work by the Isle of Man Association’s Development Officer Mark Kneen to secure the Island’s participation,”
