Free bowls

The Amendoeira Golf and Leisure Resort, near Alcantarilha, is inviting all crown green bowlers in the Algarve to enter a free competition at the championship crown green on Monday, July 13.

There will be no green fees charged and those who don’t have their own crown green bowls can hire them for two euros for the day.

The competition will start at 10am and each entrant is guaranteed a minimum of three games in a round robin stage of the competition with the winners of each group going through into a knockout.

The resort will be the venue for the Algarve Crown Green Open in September and the Portugal Crown Green Masters in October when winners of the top competitions in England will be coming to the Algarve to play for a share of the 10,000 euro prize fund.

After the free competition, Amendoeira bowls club is intending to hold a weekly competition each Monday at a cost of five euros per person members getting further discounts.

To enter the competition, you will need to register by telephoning Peter Cain on 961 356 804 or contact the clubhouse reception on 282 320 800.
