We are delighted to confirm that the Short Mat Players Tour will be running our first event in Cyprus next summer! But unlike all previous events, the Grand Prix will be different to anything we have staged before!
Working in partnership with Constantinou Bros Hotels (CBH) we will be holding the 2015 Cyprus Grand Prix at the Athena Beach Hotel in Paphos from Wednesday 3 June to Friday 5 June 2015.
The Cyprus Grand Prix will consist of three open short mat bowls tournaments, sponsored by 3D Global Wealth Management. The schedule (subject to change) will look like this:
The games will be played on mats placed on the artificial outdoor rinks – although there will be a contingency to play games indoors should we encounter adverse weather conditions. The Main Finals for all three competitions will be played in the late afternoon and early evening on Friday 5 June. These finals will be followed by a gala dinner and the presentations ceremony.
In addition to the prizes to be awarded to the winners of the three individual competitions, points will be accrued by every bowler according to how far they progress in each tournament. CBH will be donating a super prize which will be awarded to the bowler(s) with the highest overall points score at the end of the Grand Prix.
What do you need to do? Well, CBH will be providing 4, 5 and 7 night packages for bowlers travelling from the UK and will be offering special accommodation rates to bowlers travelling from other countries outside of the UK. The Cyprus Grand Prix will also be open to all Cyprus based players, who will be permitted access to the Athena Beach Hotel by CBH.
Full details of the Cyprus Grand Prix including competition formats and pricing information can be found on the dedicated ‘Cyprus‘ and ‘Tournaments’ pages of our website.
CBH will be sending one of their representatives to the UK Open. They will be happy to talk to you about the excellent facilities at the Athena Beach Hotel and give you an insight into what Paphos has to offer as a premier holiday destination. Bespoke packages can then be tailor-made to fit your requirements!
Entries to the Cyprus Grand Prix will open via our website on 1 October 2014.
