Australian Open Bowls - June 2015
The Australian Open is the most prestigious and richest event on the Australian bowls calendar.
This year the Australian Open is moving to the Gold Coast, and will be held from the 13th to the 25th of June, 2015. The transition of the event to our city is seen as a significant pillar in the development of this international calibre event and also the positioning of SE QLD as the hub of bowls in Australia.
There are over 5000 participants expected to get involved over the competitions 13 days. A selection of a dozen Gold Coast clubs will be used for portions of the 'world's biggest bowls festival.' One of those is the Broadbeach Bowls and Community Club.
The format is open entry - no qualifying and no direct entries, sectional rounds and knockout finals, minimum number of games for participants.
A huge prize purse of $225,000 is up for grabs! For more information and registration please head to the Australian Open website.
The event will also coincide with the Broadbeach Country Music Festival. What a great time to be on the Gold Coast!
