Entries to the Cyprus Grand Prix are now open!

Entries to the Short Mat Players Tour’s first eastern European event, the Cyprus Grand Prix, are now open!

The SMPT in partnership with Constantinou Bros Hotels (CBH) is delighted to be staging 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:

  • Wednesday 3 June – Cyprus Open Pairs.
  • Thursday 4 June – Cyprus Masters Singles.
  • Friday 5 June – Cyprus Matchplay Pairs.

Full details of the Cyprus Grand Prix including competition formats can be found on the ‘Tournaments’ page of our website:


The tournaments will be played on mats placed on the artificial outdoor rinks – although there will be a contingency plan 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 the Gala dinner and 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. This fantastic prize will include a 7 night stay for two at the Athena Beach Hotel, full details of which will be released in due course. Terms and conditions apply.

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.  Cyprus based players can enter the Cyprus Grand Prix through their respective clubs, who will be supplied with hardcopy entry forms for distribution to their members from 4 October 2014.

Samples of the packages available for UK players and the accommodation offers available for Non-UK players can be found on the dedicated ‘Cyprus’ page our website: http://shortmatplayerstour.com/cyprus-grand-prix/
