Veteran Novice Pairs


The Veteran/Novice Tournament teams up veterans (more than 2 years of lawn bowls experience) with novices (2 years or less of lawn bowls experience). It is a fun day and an excellent way for our novice bowlers to gain tournament experience. Inspired by the Veteran/Novice tournament played at Jefferson Park in Seattle, WA, we started playing our version in 2011. Participants may sign up as a team (veteran, novice) or as individuals, in which case the tournament director will assign teams. Teams earn points based on whether they win/lose and by how much each game. At the end of the play, the top-scoring team is declared the tournament winner.
