World class bowls field assembles

A world class field of bowlers assembles in Worksop this weekend, for a Planetbowls Open Singles tournament.

North Notts Community Arena plays host to the event, on Saturday and Sunday, as bowlers from as far afield as Glasgow and Torquay visit Bassetlaw to compete for an overall prize pot of £2,000.

The eventual winner will walk away with a cool £1.000.

The field includes ex world champion and world number eight Greg Harlow from City of Ely, world number 16 Simon Skelton of Nottingham and recent Boston Open winner Danny Brown from Lincoln.

Among the entries are 15 local players who will be testing their skills against the very best.

On Saturday play commences at 4.30pm through to approximately 9pm and on Sunday play starts at 8am and goes through to the final at 8pm.

All spectators are welcome, entry is free and the bar and dining facilities will be open on both days.
