The World Indoor Bowls Championships at Potters

Details

Football has Wembley, cricket has Lord’s and indoor bowls has Potters Resort at Hopton-on-Sea in Norfolk, which will welcome over 20,000 to the five-star Resort when it hosts the Just 2020 World Indoor Bowls Championships in January.

Taking place over 17 days, bowls biggest tournament will see the best indoor bowls players from across the world, coming from as far away as Australia, competing for victory between Friday 10th and Sunday 26th January 2020.

The blue carpet will be rolled out in the International Arena as bowls royalty steps up to the mat in five categories - the World Pairs Championship, Mixed Pairs Championship, World Under 25s Championship, Ladies Matchplay and the Open Singles Championship. The highlight of the indoor bowls calendar, it is the only world Championship final to be held in East Anglia and the final week is televised live by BBC TV.

2019 was another thrilling year with Scotland’s Stewart Anderson winning his second open singles title after defeating surprise qualifier Simon Skelton in the final. Julie Forrest of Scotland defeated Alison Merrien of Guernsey to win the women’s singles, while Scottish players Alex Marshall MBE and Paul Foster MBE won the open pairs title together for the fourth time. Somerset’s Robert Paxton and Cambridge’s Ellen Falkner won the mixed pairs event.

2020 is set to be another electrifying year and the winner of the Open Singles Final will be presented with a Langham blue glass trophy and a cheque for £50,000 – bowls biggest prize money.

As well as day tickets being available for every day of the Championships, regular visitors know that the best way to soak up the atmosphere is to stay on a short break. As well as premier world bowls action with entry into the International Arena for every day they are on Resort, guests will also be sharing the same facilities and restaurants as the players. Each break includes comfortable accommodation, four meals a day for each full day, activities, use of the sports and leisure facilities, and live evening and late night entertainment.

Day tickets start from as little as £5 per person, per day with the option of adding on lunch or dinner. A two night world bowls break starts from £219 per person based on standard bungalow accommodation. The International Arena seats 1,100 spectators.
