Matchplay Pairs 2023

Dear All

The Last few years have presented many difficulties and challenges for the BWBW, however following discussions by the board and its partners we are excited to announce that we are back and intending to run several wheelchair bowls events over the next few years.

Our first event is schedule to take place at Bristol City & County IBC over the weekend of 29th April/30th April 2023 and will be the BWBA UK MatchPlay Pairs Championship 2023.​ Play will be on a sets format. Wheelchair bowlers to use a BWBA-approved bowling wheelchair and each pair can have a wheelchair bowler paired up with a bowler of their choice, disabled or not, wheelchair bowler or not, able-bodied or not – the choice is yours

A Plate Competition will be run too in order to give players as many matches as possible within the playing format. Prize money will be paid for the main event and the Plate. Play will take place over both Saturday and Sunday with the Finals taking place on Sunday afternoon. Play should be finished by 630pm Sunday at the latest (probably earlier based on previous years) after the Trophy and prize-money has been presented. The winning pair will receive £150; runners-up £100; third-place £60 and the Plate winners £40.

We hope you are willing to support this fantastic event.
