The £2000 Bolton Open Pairs 2022
Following the success of the Manchester Open and having found a real appetite for more of the same amongst the bowls fraternity, we are pleased to announce the resurrection of the Bolton Open which will recommence in April 2022.
This event will be run as a curtain raiser for next year’s outdoor season. Taking advantage of the artificial green which will always guarantee a great pace, this is the perfect event to get ready for the season ahead.
Once again the Clubs in Lancashire are really setting a great standard for the sport of bowls, but these competitions can only continue with your valued support. This event is open to all genders and all ages. So please get your entries in as soon as possible – there are better times ahead!
Qualifiers, (all 2022) will be Sat 9 April; Sunday 10 April; Saturday 16 April; Sunday 17 April, with Grand Final Sunday 24 April 2022.

Pitch In with Sutton Winson
The Club’s Insurance Brokers, Sutton Winson Ltd, are inviting Club Members, (and their families), to contact them for a Home and/or Car insurance quotation when a Member’s personal Home and/or Car insurance is being considered for renewal or a first purchase, and in doing so, enable a small contribution into the Club's finances from the broker. The scheme is called ‘Pitch-In’.
For each completed quotation (obligation-free, and regardless of whether the quotation is then accepted), the Club will receive a small fee from Sutton Winson. If the quotation is accepted and a policy is purchased, the Club will receive a further fee.
Club Secretary Stephen Hemsley has utilised this offer and his comments are as follows:
I raised £30.00 for the Club today, doing something I was going to do anyway!
Lynne’s car insurance was due for renewal.
I asked Sutton Winson for a quote - £10.00 to Club Funds
They gave me a quote within 15 minutes with a major insurer that was competitive (price and cover)
I accepted their quote and arranged insurance - £20.00 to Club funds
So I saved money and the Club got £30.00 You could also raise funds by for the Club when each of your insurance policies is due for renewal. Simply click on the Sutton Winson logo below.
