Intergeneration 16th July 23

Biddenden Bowls Club Intergenerational 17 July


After the success of last years event the "intergenerational" is back for 2023.

I am sure that all our families still wonder why on earth we all spend so much time at the green and what is the fascination with bowls. So now is the chance to show them and get them involved.

The tournament is open to any member to enter with someone from their family from a different generation. Pairs could be two adults, an adult and teenager, an adult and a child. (There is a degree of flexibility!)

Each pair will play at least 3 games of pairs and support will be provided for the younger players/non bowlers with advice/help as needed e.g. bias, scoring, measuring etc.

The jack length will be appropriate for the pairs playing.

There will be a skills competition for everyone to enter. 

Play will start at 13.30 and should finish by 17.00 Tea, Coffee and cold drinks will be available throughout the day but bring some snacks to keep you going.

Entry will be £5 per pair 

New bowlers can have a practice and a bit of tuition from 12.15 on the day or why not bring them along ahead of the day to have a go. Casual dress and flat soled shoes. Bowls are available from children’s sizes upwards.

Please do find a family member and enter. 

This is intended to be a real bowls celebration with our families whether they play or come along to spectate. We will need a team of “minders” and people to help us run the day, so please even if you are not playing put yourself forward to help and come along and enjoy.
