British Open: A New World Ranking Event for 2018

The Short Mat Players Tour are excited to announce that a new event titled the British Open will be brought to you next season. The British Open will be the fourth World Ranking singles event in the 2017-18 season and replaces the Swedish Masters.

Full details of the British Open 2018 will be announced on Sunday 22 January along with confirmation of the remaining dates for the 2017-18 season.

This change of location will mean that 5 of the 6 world ranking events will be staged in Britain and Ireland, where it is estimated that over 90% of Short Mat bowlers are based.

The Short Mat Players Tour would like to thank Bowls Sweden and Overby IF for their considerable support and we look forward to holding more events with them in Sweden during future seasons.
