Brooke Park Bowling Club preparations are well underway for the annual floodlit pairs tournament. This is a very popular competition and attracts a large entry with the first 32 go into the draw. The closing date for entries is Friday 11th Aug.

The I.B.A. licence number for this is 17/11.

Defending champions the father and son combination of  Micky and JP Fahy are going all out to retain the trophy but there is sure to be quite a few will be looking to have a say in this.

Brooke Park has been awarded the green flag after all the regeneration work that has been carried out and the bowling green has benefited from this as it is in pristine condition and a joy to play on.

The club would like to see a few more ladies take part as they are as capable of making an impact.

The tournament runs from Mon Aug 21st with the final taking place on Friday Sept 15th.
