Following an unprecedented build-up to the new SMPT season, it is now time for the opening of entries to the second running of the Verdemat Bowls British Open. Will our York showcase make it a fourth successive singles world ranking event sell-out in 2018-19?
Set in York, one of Britain’s most beautiful and historic cities, interest in the Verdemat Bowls British Open is expected to be high, with more entrants anticipated from a number of countries.
Competitors at this event will get to play on the superb Wygreen Light mat supplied by our sponsors, Verdemat Bowls, who, with parent company Dales Sports Surfaces Ltd, continue to lead the way in the manufacture and distribution of sports surfaces across the globe.
With 70 years’ experience in the sector, Verdemat Bowls Ltd and Dales Sports Surfaces Ltd are an invaluable partner for the SMPT as they look to progress the sport of Short Mat Bowls ever further. Managing Director at Verdemat Bowls Ltd and Dales Sports Surfaces Ltd, Richard Steadman enthused: “We are delighted to support this forward thinking organisation that will hopefully increase the popularity of short mat bowls.”
The Verdemat Bowls British Open takes place at the York & District IBC on the 12th & 13th January 2019. Full information and entry details can be found here.
