Veteran Novice Pairs


The Veteran Novice Pairs Tournament teams veterans with more than two years of lawn bowling experience with novices who have two years or less of lawn bowling experience. It is a fun and excellent way for our novice bowlers to gain tournament experience. This club tournament was inspired by the veteran novice pairs tournament played at Jefferson Park in Seattle, WA and we started playing our own version in 2011. Participants may register as a team (veteran and novice) or as individuals, in which case the tournament director will assign teams. Teams earn points based on whether they win or lose and by how much each game. At the end of play, the top-scoring team is declared the tournament winner and prizes are awarded to the top teams.
