Top outdoor bowlers from across the country made their way to Skegness as Magna Vitae hosted the annual EBA Bowls Tournament earlier this month.

The competition, which was held at Skegness North Greens, on North Parade, was broken down into separate categories which covered ladies singles and pairs, mixed pairs, and men’s singles and pairs.

The mixed pairs was sponsored by Butlins, while the men’s pairs was sponsored by Skegness East Coast and Wolds Hospitality Association (SECWHA). Event organiser at Magna Vitae, David Willoughby, said: “This year’s tournament once again saw a very high standard of play.

“We’d like to thank the players themselves, some local and some from much further afield, who made the competition tough.

“We’d also like to thank those organisations and businesses that took the opportunity to sponsor a competition category.”
