Following the success of the inaugural event in June 2015, we are delighted to confirm the full details for the Short Mat Players Tour’s return to Cyprus next summer for the second Cyprus Grand Prix!
Working in partnership with Constantinou Bros Hotels (CBH) the 2016 Cyprus Grand Prix will once again be staged within the fantastic setting of the Athena Beach Hotel in Paphos from Wednesday 8 June to Friday 10 June 2016.
The Cyprus Grand Prix will consist of three open international short mat bowls tournaments, sponsored by CP Home Services. The schedule (subject to change) will look like this:
The games will be played on ‘mats’ marked on the artificial outdoor rinks. The Cup Finals for all three competitions will be played in the late afternoon and early evening on Friday 10 June. These finals will be followed by an exquisite 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 of a 7 nights stay at the Athena Beach Hotel* which will be awarded to the bowler with the highest overall points score at the end of the Grand Prix.
CBH will be providing a range of bespoke tailor-made packages (including 5 and 7 nights) for bowlers travelling from the UK and will be offering special accommodation rates to bowlers travelling from other countries outside of the UK. As last year, 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.
Entries to the Cyprus Grand Prix will open via our website on 1 November 2015.
Full details of the Cyprus Grand Prix, including competition formats and pricing information are available on the the ‘Tournaments’ page of our website.
