Bowls Portugal are proud to announce that the European Bowls Union have chosen Portugal for their annual Championships, which are to be played on the two rink facility at Vilamoura Bowls Club, in the Algarve. This event has been sponsored by Amadeu Gil da Rocha (a past President of the EBU) and his wife Janeth, owners of the Vilamoura club.

This is also a great honour for Bowls Portugal, who are the sole representatives for the EBU in this country.
The fireworks start on Saturday 5 November when bowling teams from 16 countries arrive, ready for a week of thrilling and competitive bowling, for the privilege of claiming the crown as the Champions of Europe.
The games which are played between Sunday 6 and Friday 11 November, when peace is declared and the awards are presented.
The national teams comprise four players, two men and two ladies, and the games are between mixed fours, ladies pairs and men’s pairs. Matches start each day at 9:00am and play continues until after 5:00pm, so there will be plenty of time to see them battle for the title, whenever it suits you to come along.
For those who would like to see bowling played by the cream of European players, make your way to Vilamoura Bowls Club from 6 November onwards and entrance is free.
Drinks and refreshments will be available throughout the championships.
